PLUM CREEK (Crosby County). Plum Creek rises sixteen miles southwest of Crosbyton in southwestern Crosby County (at 33°30' N, 101°29' W) and runs five miles south to its mouth on the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River, four miles north of the Garza county line (at 33°27' N, 101°29' W). It traverses an area of gently sloping terrain, moderately steep slopes, high relief, and a few minor faults, surfaced by shallow to moderately deep silt loams that support mesquite and grasses.
