SOUTH PRONG OF LONG CREEK. The South Prong of Long Creek rises fourteen miles southwest of Albany in southwest Shackelford County (at 32°34' N, 99°28' W) and runs northwest for thirteen miles to its mouth on Long Creek, near the Jones county line (at 32°39' N, 99°35' W). Resistant ledges and low cuestas in the area are surfaced by shallow, stony clay and sandy loams that support live oak, juniper, and grasses.
