MUSTANG CREEK (Uvalde County). Mustang Creek rises twelve miles southwest of Uvalde in far southwest Uvalde County (at 29°08' N, 99°57' W) and runs southeast for seventeen miles to its mouth (at 28°59' N, 99°48' W) on the Nueces River three miles northeast of La Pryor in north central Zavala County. Steep to gently sloping terrain is surfaced by deep loam and clay which support scrub brush and various grasses. The terrain changes to flat with local shallow depressions surfaced by expansive clays with high and low permeability which support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
