SISTER CREEK. Sister Creek rises in two branches in northern Kendall County. West Sister Creek rises five miles southeast of Bankersmith (at 30°06' N, 98°45' W) and flows southeast for eleven miles; East Sister Creek rises six miles southwest of Lindendale (at 30°05' N, 98°41' W) and flows south for ten miles. Sister Creek proper is formed by the confluence of these two tributaries (at 29°58' N, 98°43' W) and flows south for another half mile to its mouth on the Guadalupe River, six miles east of Waring (at 29°57' N, 98°43' W). Steep slopes and benches in the area are surfaced by shallow clay loams that support juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses.
