BUFFALO DRAW. Buffalo Draw begins a mile southeast of the junction of Farm roads 864 and 2597 in northeastern Sutton County (at 30°38' N, 100°16' W) and runs south for ten miles to its mouth on the North Llano River (at 30°32' N, 100°20' W). The draw traverses the gently rolling limestone terrain of the western Edwards Plateau, which is characterized by shallow and deep loamy soils occasionally broken by rock outcrops. Range grasses and scattered small stands of oak, juniper, and mesquite grow in the area.
