COX DRAW. Cox Draw, also known as Riggs Draw, is a valley with an intermittent stream. It rises 1½ miles northeast of Beard Mountain in northwestern Pecos County (at 30°50' N, 103°30' W) and runs northwest thirteen miles to its mouth on Sandia Creek, a half mile north of Interstate Highway 10 in southeastern Reeves County (at 30°58' N, 103°35' W). Its course crosses an area of canyonlands and steep to gentle slopes over volcanic rocks, then ends on flat terrain with mountain wash deposits. The land surface consists of rough stony areas, generally light reddish-brown to brown sands, and clay loams that support scrub brush, grasses, creosote bush, and cacti.
