BIG SANDY CREEK (Lee County). Big Sandy Creek rises 2½ miles west of Lawhon Springs in extreme western Lee County (at 30°23' N, 97°16' W) and flows southwest for twenty-one miles, through northwestern Bastrop County, before emptying into the Colorado River nine miles northwest of Bastrop (at 30°10' N, 97°21' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, flows through rolling prairie surfaced with clay loams that primarily support hardwood and pine forest, mesquite, and grasses.
