CALLAHAN DRAW. Callahan Draw rises from several playas six miles northwest of Hale Center in west central Hale County (at 34°07' N, 101°44' W) and runs mainly southeast through farmlands for twenty-five miles, entering western Floyd County three miles northwest of Barwise before reaching its mouth on the White River, two miles southwest of Sandhill (at 33°59' N, 101°26' W). Much of the stream consists of only a dry bed of sandy loam, though numerous wet-weather ponds are located along its course. It traverses gently sloping terrain that supports scrub brush and grasses. The rural community of Callahan is on the draw five miles south of Plainview.
