PLEASANT CREEK. Pleasant Creek rises (at 34°46' N, 101°27' W) near the south rim of the Palo Duro Canyon in southwestern Armstrong County and runs northeast for six miles to its mouth (at 34°50' N, 101°25' W) on the Prairie Dog Town Fork of the Red River, twenty-three miles southwest of Goodnight. The stream traverses through an area of moderately steep slopes with locally high relief. Native vegetation is limited to mesquite and grasses growing in moderate silt loams. The creek remains for the most part within the boundaries of the JA Ranch.
