SALT CREEK (Concho County). Salt Creek rises in eastern Concho County (at 31°15' N, 99°37' W) fifteen miles east of Eden. It flows north for twenty-six miles to its mouth (at 31°25' N, 99°31' W) on the Colorado River. The rolling to flat terrain has local shallow depressions and is surfaced by clay and sandy loams which support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses, as well as scrub brush and mesquite.
