WILDORADO CREEK. Wildorado Creek rises in southeastern Oldham County (at 35°14' N, 102°13' W) and flows northeast for ten miles into Sierrita de la Cruz Creek (at 35°15' N, 102°11' W). The stream passes through terrain of moderately steep slopes, where silt loams support grasses and mesquite. It was part of the Ware family's LS Ranch properties in 1980 and gave its name to the town of Wildorado located to the southeast.
