LONG JOHN HOLLOW. Long John Hollow, which begins four miles southwest of Montell in far northwestern Uvalde County (at 29°30' N, 100°04' W), has an intermittent stream. The hollow runs southeast nine miles and ends east of Farm Road 55 and west of the Nueces River near Laguna (at 29°25' N, 100°01' W). Steep slopes and benches in the area are surfaced by very shallow to shallow, stony clay and loam that support juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses. The terrain changes to level with low relief, surfaced by deep loam and clay that support pecan and other hardwoods.
