GLENWOOD CREEK. Glenwood Creek, an intermittent stream fed by Glenwood Springs, rises twelve miles northeast of Howardwick in northern Donley County (at 35°09' N, 100°47' W) and runs south for ten miles to its mouth on Saddlers Creek (at 35°01' N, 100°46' W). The stream is on land that was once part of the Quarter Circle Heart and RO ranch ranges. It traverses flat to rolling terrain with some local escarpments, and thick, fine sandy loam soils that support native vegetation including mesquite brush and grasses.
