COOKS SLOUGH. Cooks Slough rises near Farm Road 55 four miles northeast of Sevenmile Hill and seven miles northwest of Uvalde in central Uvalde County (at 29°20' N, 99°50' W) and runs southeast seventeen miles to its mouth on the Leona River, two miles southeast of Uvalde near the Fort Inge Historical Site (at 29°10' N, 99°46' W). In the creek's upper reaches steep to gently sloping terrain is surfaced by very shallow to shallow and stony clay and loam that supports sparse scrub brush and grass; along the lower section the terrain changes to flat with locally shallow depressions, surfaced by deep loam and clay that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grass.
