FORTYONE CANYON CREEK. Fortyone Canyon Creek, also known as T Fortyone (or T41) Canyon Creek, rises four miles south of U.S. Highway 82 in east central Dickens County (at 33°33' N, 100°35' W) and runs southwest for four miles to its mouth on Little Croton Creek, fourteen miles northeast of Spur (at 33°32' N, 100°38' W). The stream rises at an elevation of about 2,200 feet above sea level and drops almost 300 feet as it runs through an area of dissected gullies, low hills, and steep slopes. In some areas there is no topsoil; in other places silt loams support grasses and mesquite. The canyon and creek were named for the T41 cattle brand.
