MUJARES CREEK. Mujares Creek rises in Deaf Smith County (at 35°05' N, 102°55' W) and flows north near the ranching community of Boise in southwestern Oldham County where it is joined by its East Fork (at 35°07' N, 102°55' W) and then flows northwest four miles into Trujillo Creek (at 35°20' N, 102°57' W). Mujares Creek, its name a corruption of the Spanish word mujeres (women), was on property successively owned by the LE, XIT, and Matador ranchesqqv and is now owned by the Trujillo Cattle Corporation. The creek crosses terrain with moderately steep slopes and locally high relief, surfaced by shallow silt loams that support mesquite and grasses.
