SKUNK CREEK. Skunk Creek rises seven miles southwest of Darrouzett in north central Lipscomb County (at 36°23' N, 100°16' W) and flows southeast for ten miles until it reaches its mouth on Wolf Creek, nine miles northeast of Lipscomb (at 36°15' N, 100°10' W). The creek flows through an area once leased and operated by the S Bar T Ranch. The terrain there varies from flat to rolling with some local escarpments. Native vegetation consists of mesquite and various grasses in soil composed of deep, fine sandy loams.
