INDIAN CREEK (Runnels County). Indian Creek rises four miles northeast of Miles in southwestern Runnels County (at 31°40' N, 100°08' W) and runs northeast for ten miles before emptying into the Colorado River five miles north of Rowena (at 31°43' N, 100°02' W). Water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses grow along the length of the stream, which runs through flat terrain with locally shallow depressions and an expansive clay surface.
