Clear Creek (Burnet County)

General Entry

Clear Creek rises in two branches in eastern Burnet County. The West Branch of Clear Creek rises five miles northeast of Bertram (at 30°47' N, 98°00' W) and runs southeast for three miles. The East Branch of Clear Creek rises four miles northeast of Bertram (at 30°41' N, 98°00' W) and runs southeast for four miles. The two branches converge to form Cedar Creek (at 30°46' N, 97°57' W), which runs southeast for three miles to its mouth on the North Fork of San Gabriel River, five miles north of Liberty Hill in Williamson County (at 30°45' N, 97°55' W). Surrounding steep slopes and benches are surfaced by shallow clay loams that support juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses.

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