CROW CREEK (Wheeler County). Crow Creek rises a few miles east of Shamrock in southeastern Wheeler County (at 35°14' N, 100°11' W) and runs southeast for six miles into Collingsworth County, where it reaches its mouth on Elm Creek (at 35°07' N, 100°06' W). The stream crosses rolling to steep-sloped terrain surfaced by shallow clay and sandy loams that support primarily juniper and sparse grasses. During the 1880s and early 1890s Crow Creek was included in the vast rangeland owned or leased by the Rocking Chair Ranch.
