CLAYTON DRAW. Clayton Draw is formed by the confluence of Bronco Mule Draw and Luckett Draw, five miles southwest of Dome Hill in south central Culberson County (at 31°20' N, 104°30' W). It runs southeast for twenty-one miles before running dry twelve miles north of Kent (at 31°14' N, 104°12' W). Water actually flows in only the first nine and last three miles of Clayton Draw, which traverses steep to gentle slopes surfaced by shallow to moderately deep clay and sandy loams that support scrub brush and sparse grasses.
