SALT CREEK (DICKENS COUNTY)
SALT CREEK (Dickens County). Salt Creek rises seventeen miles southeast of Dickens in southeast Dickens County (at 33°32' N, 100°35' W), on the eastern edge of the steep slopes and high relief of the Croton Breaks at an elevation of 2,140 feet, and runs northeast, through remote ranchland, for eleven miles before merging with the South Wichita River in western King County (at 33°35' N, 100°29' W). Salt Creek provides the drainage for a shallow canyon and descends almost 300 feet along its brief journey. The area's shallow silt supports only mesquite and grasses.
