SAUCITO CREEK. Saucito Creek rises in Cuesta del Burro four miles south of Farm Road 2810 in central Presidio County (at 30°09' N, 104°18' W) and runs east for eighteen miles to its mouth on Alamito Creek, just east of U.S. Highway 67 and 1½ miles west of Bogel community (at 30°08' N, 104°02' W). It is surrounded by desert mountain terrains of sedimentary deposits, slopes of inactive alluvial fans, and wash deposits of gravel and sands that support sparse grasses, desert shrubs, and cacti.
