BRUSHY CREEK (Donley County). Brushy Creek rises twelve miles west of Clarendon in southwestern Donley County (at 45°50' N, 100°52' W) and flows south for eight miles to its mouth on Mulberry Creek, twenty miles west of Lakeview in northwestern Hall County (at 34°40' N, 100°52' W). The stream was once part of the JA Ranch horse pasture and is now on Bitter Creek Ranch property. A small reservoir is impounded upstream near State Highway 70 in southern Donley County. The creek flows through terrain with moderately steep slopes and locally high relief, surfaced with silt loams in which grow primarily mesquite and grasses.
