PANTHER CREEK (MASON COUNTY)
PANTHER CREEK (Mason County). Panther Creek rises one mile northeast of Cannon Mountain in southern Mason County (at 30°31' N, 99°12' W). Intermittent in its upper reaches, the stream flows in a northerly direction for 10½ miles to its mouth on the Llano River, 3½ miles southeast of the James River (at 30°37' N, 99°12' W). Rising in the limestone hills on the eastern edge of the Edwards Plateau, the creek crosses an area of flat to rolling terrain, surfaced by shallow and stony to sandy and clayey loams that support grasses and open stands of live oak and Ashe juniper.
