SAND CREEK (Borden County). Sand Creek rises in northern Borden County (at 32°55' N, 101°13' W), flows into Garza County, and travels northeast for ten miles. Its confluence with the North Fork of the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River is four miles southeast of Justiceburg (at 33°01' N, 101°09' W). Sand Creek flows through gentle to moderately steep slopes surfaced with shallow to moderately deep silt loams and variable soils covered by mesquite, scrub brush, and grasses.
