COMANCHE CREEK (Pecos County). Comanche Creek rises at Comanche Springs in Fort Stockton in central Pecos County (at 30°53' N, 102°53' W) and runs northeast for forty-three miles to its mouth on the Pecos River, three miles north of Girvin (at 31°06' N, 102°24' W). It crosses steep to rolling terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support creosote bush, tarbush, mesquite, and juniper brush.
