BUENA CREEK. Buena Creek rises four miles south of U.S. Highway 90 in southern Terrell County (at 29°57' N, 102°03' W) and runs southeast for five miles to its mouth on Indian Creek, a half mile above the junction of Deer and Indian creeks (at 29°52' N, 102°00' W). It crosses rolling prairies overlying chalk deposits and variable terrain overlying limestone and limy mud. The area's topsoils are generally dark, calcareous stony clays and clay loams in which oaks, junipers, and grasses grow.
