COTTONWOOD CREEK (Scurry County). Cottonwood Creek rises seven miles east of Snyder in east central Scurry County (at 32°45' N, 100°47' W) and runs northeast for nine miles to its mouth on Rough Creek, twelve miles northeast of Snyder (at 32°50' N, 100°44' W). The creek, intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses moderately steep slopes with locally high relief, surfaced by shallow to moderately deep silt loams that support mesquite and grasses.
