ALAMOSA CREEK (Motley County). Alamosa Creek, once known as Alamo Creek, rises just north of Farm Road 97 and twenty miles northwest of Matador in northwestern Motley County (at 34°14' N, 101°01' W) and runs northeast for eight miles to its mouth on Quitaque Creek, six miles northeast of Flomot (at 34°15' N, 100°53' W). It crosses flat to gently sloping terrain surfaced by quartz sand and silt that support scrub brush and grasses.
