White Creek (Blanco County)


White Creek rises in rugged Hill Country terrain two miles west of Tater Hill in northwestern Blanco County (at 30°25' N, 98°34' W) and runs northeast for 15½ miles to its mouth on Sandy Creek, a mile above the State Highway 71 bridge over Sandy Creek in southeastern Llano County (at 30°33' N, 98°29' W). White Creek flows over the southeastern reaches of the Llano Uplift. The area is characterized by large outcroppings of exposed granite and numerous boulders interspersed with live oak, post oak, and short grasses, and calcareous soils.

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