LOST CREEK (Motley County). Lost Creek, also known as Lost Canyon Creek, rises (at 34°01' N, 100°58' W) in southwestern Motley County a mile north of U.S. Highway 62/70 and runs west through Lost Canyon for six miles to its mouth (at 34°02' N, 100°56' W) on the Middle Pease River, six miles south of the Whiteflat community. The creek area was part of the Matador Ranch holdings in Motley County and was considered high-quality grazing land.
