MULATO CREEK. Mulato Creek rises in north central Zapata County (at 27°14' N, 99°05' W) and runs southwest for seven miles to its mouth on Salomoneño Creek (at 27°09' N, 99°08' W). It traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support mesquite, chaparral, grasses, and water-tolerant hardwoods.
