PETE CREEK. Pete Creek rises (at 33°38' N, 101°03' W) on the eastern Crosby county line and runs south ten miles to its mouth (at 33°31' N, 101°05' W) on White River, four miles north of the White River Dam. The stream initially passes through flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments, surfaced by deep, fine, sandy loam soils that support brush and grasses. Later in its course it traverses an area of moderately steep slopes and locally high relief, surfaced by shallow to deep silt loams that support mesquite and grasses.
