WILLOW CREEK (LIPSCOMB COUNTY)
WILLOW CREEK (Lipscomb County). Willow Creek rises nine miles west of Higgins in southeastern Lipscomb County (at 36°08' N, 100°12' W) and flows north for seven miles to its mouth on Wolf Creek (at 36°14' N, 100°09' W). The creek was on J. R. Wheat's ranch and, fed by Willow Spring, flowed constantly until the drought of 1950. It was part of the old Box T range. Willow Creek flows through flat to rolling terrain composed of mostly deep, fine, sandy loams that support brush and grasses.
