CUSENBARY DRAW. Cusenbary Draw, a drainage ditch infrequently filled with water, begins a fourth of a mile north of the Edwards county line and east of Cusenbary Road in south central Sutton County (at 30°17' N, 100°32' W) and runs northwest for sixteen miles until it meets Cauthorn Draw west of U.S. Highway 277 (at 30°25' N, 100°42' W). The draw traverses the gently rolling limestone terrain of the western Edwards Plateau, and the area is surfaced by shallow to deep loamy soils occasionally broken by rock outcrops. Local vegetation is mainly range grasses with scattered small stands of oak, juniper, and mesquite.
