COTTONWOOD CREEK (Falls County). Cottonwood Creek rises within the southern city limits of Lott in western Falls County (at 31°12' N, 97°02' W) and runs southeast for thirteen miles to its mouth on Pond Creek, one mile southwest of Rosebud (at 31°04' N, 97°00' W). It is intermittent in its upper reaches. The creek traverses flat to rolling prairie surfaced by dark, calcareous clays that support mesquite trees, cacti, and grasses.
