LOS LINGOS CREEK. Los Lingos Creek, also known as Linguist Creek, rises in southeastern Briscoe County (at 34°24' N, 101°14' W) and flows southeast for ten miles to its mouth on Quitaque Creek, in northwestern Motley County (at 34°18' N, 101°02' W). The terrain through which this creek passes ranges from flat to gently sloping. Shallow to moderately deep silt loams support mesquite and grasses along its banks. It was formerly part of the old Quitaque (Lazy F) Ranch owned by Charles Goodnight.
