POWELLDALE MOUNTAINS. The Powelldale Mountains (at 32°02' N, 97°30' W), also called the Powell Mountains, are peaks in northeastern Bosque County approximately 5½ miles east of Morgan. The hills have an elevation of about 720 feet above sea level and rise some seventy-five feet above the point to the south where Farm roads 927 and 56 intersect. The Powelldale Mountains lie in an area of the Grand Prairie characterized by topography that varies from flat terrain to rolling prairie with occasional steep limestone slopes. Vegetation consists primarily of oak, juniper, grasses, chaparral, and cacti growing in shallow to deep stony clay and sandy loam soils. The community of Powelldale was located near the hills.
