CLOUD BAYOU. Cloud (Clouds) Bayou rises a mile southwest of Alta Loma and State Highway 6 in western Galveston County (at 29°22' N, 95°06' W) and runs southwest for seven miles to its mouth on Halls Bayou, just northwest of Halls Bayou Camp in eastern Brazoria County (at 27°17' N, 95°08' W). The surrounding rolling to flat terrain is surfaced by sandy and clay loam that supports mixed hardwoods and pines.
