DRY DEVILS RIVER (Edwards County). Dry Devils River rises at the Lantern community in extreme northwest Edwards County (at 30°13' N, 100°31' W) and runs forty-nine miles southwest to its mouth on Devils River, eight miles northeast of Comstock in southwest Val Verde County (at 29°47' N, 100°59' W). The surrounding terrain is flat with local shallow depressions and local deep and dense dissection. From the land surface of clay and sandy loams and shallow, stony soils grow water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, grasses, oak, juniper, and mesquite.
