DRY CREEK (Armstrong County). Dry Creek rises at the breaks of the Llano Estacado in Palo Duro Canyon in western Armstrong County (at 35°00' N, 101°32' W) and runs southeast for nine miles to its mouth on the Prairie Dog Town Fork of the Red River (at 34°52' N, 101°28' W). It traverses an area of moderately steep slopes with locally high relief, surfaced by loamy soils that support rangeland grasses and mesquite. The creek was once part of the old JJ division of the JA Ranch, and cattle still graze along its banks.
