SALT BRANCH (Live Oak County). Salt Branch rises two miles northeast of Esseville in northern Live Oak County (at 28°43' N, 98°11' W) and runs southwest for seven miles to its mouth on Olmos Creek just east of Whitsett (at 28°38' N, 98°16' W). Low rolling to flat terrain with local dissections and locally shallow depressions is surfaced by deep to shallow clay and sandy loam which supports scrub brush, cacti, and grasses in the creek's upper reaches and water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses in its lower.
