WANDERERS CREEK. Wanderers Creek rises four miles southwest of Quanah in Hardeman County (at 34°14' N, 99°48' W) and winds northeast into Wilbarger County thirty miles to its mouth (at 34°23' N, 99°24' W) on the Prairie Dog Town Fork of the Red River. It is dammed near its source to form Lake Pauline. Level terrain at 1,380 to 1,420 feet above sea level is surfaced by sandy loam which supports short grasses and mesquite.
