BUCK CREEK (TERRELL COUNTY)
BUCK CREEK (Terrell County). Buck Creek rises two miles northeast of the Rose Ranch headquarters in south central Terrell County (at 30°07' N, 102°14' W) and runs southeast for fourteen miles to its mouth on Thurston Canyon, three miles north of U.S. Highway 90 (at 30°03' N, 102°03' W). Its course crosses steep to gentle slopes on wash deposits and sharply dissects massive limestone to form a winding canyon. The local soils of generally dark, calcareous stony clays and clay loams support scrub brush, oaks, junipers, grasses, and mesquites.
