PALO BLANCO CREEK (Maverick County). Palo Blanco Creek rises (at 29°04' N, 100°12' W) in Maverick County a mile south of the Kinney county line and runs southeast for thirty-two miles to its mouth (at 28°42' N, 99°59' W) on Picosa Creek, ten miles west of Crystal City in far southwestern Zavala County. It traverses flat terrain with locally shallow depressions and low relief, surfaced by expansive clays that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses, interspersed with pecan and other hardwoods in the lower reaches of the creek.
