COTTONWOOD CREEK (San Saba County). Cottonwood Creek rises 3½ miles northeast of Richland Springs in northern San Saba County (at 31°19' N, 98°56' W) and runs northeast to its mouth on the Colorado River, at a point where the Colorado serves as the San Saba and Mills county line (at 31°24' N, 98°49' W). The creek runs through moderately to steeply sloping hills surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports live oak, mesquite, Ashe juniper, and grasses.
