SAND CREEK (Borden County). Sand Creek begins just west of Farm Road 669 in northwest Borden County (at 32°58' N, 101°27' W). It enters Garza County and runs northeast for eight miles before joining the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River twenty miles south of Post (at 32°59' N, 101°21' W). Sand Creek flows through flat to moderately steep slopes with local shallow depressions and high relief; the area's shallow to moderately deep silt loams and clay and sandy loams are covered by trees, mesquite, and grasses.
