DRY CIBOLO CREEK. Dry Cibolo Creek rises sixteen miles east of Dilley in far southeastern Frio County (at 28°43' N, 99°21' W) and runs southeast for ten miles to its mouth on Cibolo Creek, near Woodward and five miles northeast of the intersection of Farm Road 469 and the Missouri Pacific in northwestern La Salle County (at 28°37' N, 99°16' W). Cibolo is Spanish for bison. The stream traverses flat terrain with locally shallow depressions, surfaced by expansive clays that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
