DRY CREEK (Coleman County). Dry Creek rises just northeast of Shield and fourteen miles south of Coleman in south central Coleman County (at 31°36' N, 99°25' W) and runs eight miles southeast to its mouth on Home Creek, two miles west of Farm Road 2633 (at 31°33' N, 99°19' W). It crosses flat, flood-prone terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
