DRY CREEK (Menard County). Dry Creek rises fourteen miles north of the Fort McKavett community in northwestern Menard County (at 31°05' N, 100°06' W) and runs southeast for twenty-one miles to its mouth on the San Saba River, eight miles west of Menard (at 30°54' N, 99°55' W). It traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions and deep dissections, surfaced by shallow and stony to moderately deep clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
