MULA CREEK. Mula Creek rises a mile south of the Kinney-Maverick county line and twenty-five miles northeast of Quemado in far northeast Maverick County (at 29°04' N, 100°13' W) and runs southeast for twenty-eight miles before emptying into Palo Blanco Creek one mile southeast of the intersection of U.S. Highway 57 and the Maverick/Zavala county line in far west central Zavala County (at 28°55' N, 100°07' W). Along the creekbed grow pecans and other hardwoods, as well as chaparral, mesquite, and grasses. The area terrain features low-rolling hills and prairie with occasional low relief surfaces, and the soils are moderately to highly expansive clays.
