ROSITA CREEK (Maverick County). Rosita Creek rises 7½ miles northeast of Eagle Pass in west central Maverick County (at 28°47' N, 100°24' W) and flows south for eighteen miles before emptying into the Rio Grande ten miles southeast of Eagle Pass (at 28°35' N, 100°24' W). The vegetation along its course varies from chaparral, mesquite, and grasses in the upper reaches, to water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses in the middle section, to pecans, other hardwoods, and grasses in the lower reaches. The stream rises in low-rolling hills and continues through flat terrain with locally shallow depressions before entering terrain with low relief surfaces. Soils are generally clayey.
