OPOSSUM HOLLOW. Opossum Hollow begins seven miles from Muenster in northwestern Cooke County (at 33°43' N, 97°21' W) and runs north for five miles to South Fish Creek, three miles south of Marysville (at 33°46' N, 97°19' W). An intermittent stream runs through the hollow. The local variable terrain is surfaced by stony clay loams that support juniper, oak, and grasses.
