PELON CIZ CREEK
PELON CIZ CREEK. Pelon Ciz Creek, also called Pelon Creek, rises nine miles southeast of Catarina in southeastern Dimmit County (at 28°13'N,99°33'W) and flows east for nine miles before emptying into Las Raices Creek eight miles southwest of Artesia Wells in southwest La Salle County (at 28°13' N, 99°22' W). The stream rises in rolling prairie and descends to flat terrain with locally shallow depressions. Mesquite, grasses, and chaparral predominate upstream, and water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses downstream. The land is surfaced with clay loams in the upper reaches of the creek and clay and sandy loams in the lower reaches.
