DRY CREEK (Young County). Dry Creek rises just south of the intersection of U.S. Highway 380 and Farm Road 2075 in southeastern Young County (at 33°09' N, 98°27' W) and runs southwest for twelve miles to its mouth on Salt Creek, two miles south of Graham (at 33°04' N, 98°35' W). It begins in an area of ledges and low cuestas with shallow stony soils and runs into steeply to moderately sloping hills with shallow stony clay and sandy loams. Local vegetation includes oak, juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses. The Center Ridge cemetery is a mile south of the creek in eastern Young County.
