DRY CREEK (San Saba County). Dry Creek, intermittent in its upper reaches, rises 6½ miles southwest of Richland Springs in western San Saba County (at 31°12' N, 99°00' W) and runs east for 12½ miles to its mouth on the San Saba River (at 31°13' N, 98°52' W). It traverses flat to rolling uplands with live oak, mesquite, Ashe juniper, and grasses growing in clayey and sandy loam soils. The stream was originally named Jobe's (Job's, Jobs) Creek, for Abraham Jobe, who surveyed the area in 1847.
