DRIPPING SPRINGS. Dripping Springs, a stream, rises just north of U.S. Highway 62/70 in west central Motley County (at 33°59' N, 100°55' W) and runs north for four miles to its mouth on Salt Creek, five miles west of Matador (at 34°01' N, 100°54' W). An early Matador Ranch map showed the creek to be in an area of high-quality grazing land. It runs through rolling terrain surfaced by moderately deep sandy loams that support brush and grasses.
