SALT CREEK (Motley County). Salt Creek rises in southwestern Motley County five miles east of the Floyd county line and just north of U.S. Highway 62/80 (at 34°01' N, 100°57' W). The intermittent stream runs northeast for seven miles to its mouth on the Middle Pease River, four miles northwest of Matador (at 34°03' N, 100°53' W). The area was within Matador Ranch holdings in the county and considered average to superior grazing land. The terrain is moderately steep and sloping and surfaced by shallow to moderately deep silt loams that support mesquite and grasses.
