PERDIDO CREEK (Kinney County). Perdido Creek rises twelve miles west of Brackettville in west central Kinney County (at 29°29' N, 100°34' W) and runs southwest for nineteen miles to its mouth on Pinto Creek, just east of the Southern Pacific line (at 29°18' N, 100°36' W). The stream initially traverses variable terrain, surfaced by muddy sands and alluvial materials that support scrub brush, cacti, and grasses. Nearer the mouth of the creek, the terrain changes to flat with locally shallow depressions, surfaced by clays that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
