SANDY BRANCH. Sandy Branch rises three miles northeast of Sublime in northeastern Lavaca County (at 29°31' N, 96°45' W) and flows southwest for eight miles, passing through the eastern edge of Sublime and crossing Alternate U.S. Highway 90, on the Navidad River, 2½ miles south of Sublime to its mouth (at 29°26' N, 96°48' W). It runs through poorly drained sandy loam, and the banks are eroded to depths of ten or more feet. The area, mostly unimproved range, is densely wooded with mixed oak, cedar, and yaupon, which provide excellent wildlife habitat.
