PICKETT RANCH CREEK
PICKETT RANCH CREEK. Pickett Ranch Creek rises (at 36°06' N, 100°43' W) at the edge of the breaks in southern Ochiltree County and runs south for eight miles to its mouth (at 35°59' N, 100°43' W) on the Canadian River, in north central Roberts County. The terrain is flat to rolling with local escarpments. Brush and grasses grow in the mostly deep, fine, sandy loams along the banks of the creek. The stream was once part of Henry W. (Hank) Cresswell's Bar CC ranges.
