LEGION CREEK. Legion Creek rises 2½ miles north of Eckert in north central Gillespie County (at 30°27' N, 98°44' W) and follows a northerly course for 8½ miles along a broad, sandy bed as it approaches its mouth on Sandy Creek, two miles east of the intersection of State Highway 16 and Ranch Road 965 (at 30°33' N, 98°48' W). It traverses an area of the Llano basin characterized by flat to rolling terrain, locally dissected and surfaced with soils ranging from sandy to clay loams. Vegetation consists primarily of open stands of live oak and mesquite.
