RANKIN DRAW. Rankin Draw rises four miles south of U.S. Highway 67 near the Reagan county line in southeast Upton County (at 31°12' N, 101°47' W) and runs 16½ miles southwest to its mouth on China Draw, near the intersection of U.S. 67 and State Highway 349 3½ miles southwest of Rankin (at 31°12' N, 102°00' W). The draw lies in a natural geologic floodplain composed of sand, gravel, and mud substrate with some bedrock areas. Its bed has clay loam and sandy loam soils that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
