Acebuche Draw

General Entry

Acebuche Draw originates in southwestern Pecos County near Panther Mesa (at 30°25' N, 103°10' W) and runs northeast for forty-five miles before emptying into Lake Leon near Interstate Highway 10, eight miles west of Fort Stockton (at 30°53' N, 103°01' W). The draw runs through an area of steep to gentle slopes surfaced with clayey and sandy loams. In the local vegetation creosote bush, tarbush, mesquite shrubs, and juniper shrubs predominate.

The following, adapted from the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th edition, is the preferred citation for this entry.
