BULL RUN CREEK. Bull Run Creek rises in Palo Duro Canyon, at the edge of the Llano Estacado in southern Armstrong County (at 34°51' N, 101°15' W), and runs southwest for eight miles, across the JA Ranch, to its mouth on the Prairie Dog Town Fork of the Red River, just south of the Briscoe county line (at 34°45' N, 101°17' W). It traverses sloping mesquite plains with loamy soils.
