PALITO BLANCO CREEK. Palito Blanco Creek, also known as Palito Blanco Arroyo, rises eight miles northwest of Callaghan in central Webb County (at 27°53' N, 99°29' W) and runs southwest for thirteen miles to its mouth on Santa Isabel Creek, fourteen miles southwest of Callaghan (at 27°51' N, 99°38' W). The creek rises in low, rolling terrain and descends to flat terrain with locally shallow depressions. The local clay and sandy loam soils support grasses, mesquite, and chaparral in the stream's upper reaches and water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses in its lower.
