MULE CREEK (Maverick County). Mule Creek rises 1½ miles south of U.S. Highway 277 and fourteen miles southeast of Eagle Pass in central Maverick County (at 28°38' N, 100°17' W) and flows a total of eight miles, first northwest, then southwest, before emptying into Saus Creek seven miles north of El Indio in west central Maverick County (at 28°37' N, 100°20' W). The stream flows through low rolling hills and prairie. Chaparral, mesquite, and various grasses grow in the area's clayey soil.
