COTTONWOOD CREEK (Culberson County). Cottonwood Creek, also known as Cottonwood Draw, rises nine miles northeast of Dome Hill in central Culberson County (at 31°30' N, 104°22' W) and runs southeast for forty-five miles before running dry five miles northeast of Toyah in central Reeves County (at 31°23' N, 103°45' W). It cuts across flat terrain with local steep slopes upstream. Downstream the terrain is gently sloping to steep and surfaced by shallow, stony sand that supports creosote bush, cacti, scrub brush, and sparse grasses.
