WILLOW CREEK (Howard County). Willow Creek rises in the Vealmoor East oilfield near Farm Road 846 eight miles east of Vincent in north central Howard County near the county line (at 32°30' N, 101°21' W) and runs northeast twenty-six miles, through Howard, Borden, and Mitchell counties, to its mouth on the Colorado River, just north of Cuthbert and Farm Road 1229 (at 32°31' N, 101°02' W). The surrounding moderately steep slopes are composed of mud and sand substrate surfaced with shallow to moderately deep silt loams that support mesquite and grasses.
