COTTONWOOD CREEK (Lipscomb County). Cottonwood Creek rises eleven miles southeast of Higgins in southern Lipscomb County (at 36°05' N, 100°16' W) and runs northeast for ten miles to its mouth on Wolf Creek, four miles east of Lipscomb (at 36°15' N, 100°12' W). It traverses flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments, surfaced by deep, fine sandy loams that support native vegetation including mesquite shrubs and grasses.
