DRY CREEK (Coke County). Dry Creek rises east of Hayrick in northeastern Coke County (at 32°00' N, 100°21' W) and runs southeast for four miles to its mouth on Kickapoo Creek (at 31°58' N, 100°18' W), which flows into the Colorado River. Dry Creek passes at first through steep-sloped terrain surfaced by shallow clay loams, then through an area of moderate slopes with shallow, stony clay and sandy loams. Local vegetation includes juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses.
