SECOND ELM CREEK
SECOND ELM CREEK. Second Elm Creek rises ten miles north of Artesia Wells in western La Salle County (at 28°20' N, 99°16' W) and runs southeast for nine miles to its mouth on Las Raices Creek, seventeen miles east of Artesia Wells (at 28°16' N, 99°09' W). The stream crosses low, rolling terrain into flat terrain with locally shallow depressions. Clay and sandy loams support grasses, mesquite, and chaparral in the creek's upper reaches and water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses in its lower reaches.
