SULPHUR CREEK (Hudspeth County). Sulphur Creek rises eight miles northeast of Allamoore in east central Hudspeth County (at 31°12' N, 104°57' W) and runs southeast for seventeen miles to its mouth on a series of levees fed by artesian wells, twelve miles northeast of Van Horn in the salt flats of western Culberson County (31°10' N, 104°44' W). It traverses flat to rolling terrain with deep and dense dissections, surfaced by shallow, stony soil and sandy and clay loams that support oak, juniper, mesquite, scrub brush, and grasses.
