SALTGRASS DRAW. Saltgrass Draw rises a mile east of the Presidio county line on the eastern edge of the Solitario twelve miles northwest of Terlingua in southwestern Brewster County (at 29°26' N, 103°46' W) and runs southeast for fifteen miles to its mouth on Terlingua Creek, four miles northeast of Terlingua (at 29°23' N, 103°36' W). Variable terrain is surfaced by shallow, stony soils that support oak, juniper, grasses, chaparral, cacti, and some mesquite. In the stream's lower reaches the terrain is densely dissected with gullies and low hills; soils and vegetation are sparse or absent.
