DRY MORMON CREEK. Dry Mormon Creek, formerly known as Walnut Creek, rises four miles southeast of Doss in northwestern Gillespie County (at 30°24' N, 99°05' W) and runs northwest for six miles to its mouth on Mormon Creek, three-quarters of a mile northeast of Doss in northwestern Gillespie County (at 30°28' N, 99°07' W). The creek begins in the limestone hills on the eastern edge of the Edwards Plateau and crosses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by shallow to deep sandy and clayey loams that support brush and grasses, as well as open stands of live oak, Ashe juniper, and some mesquite.
