DEEP CREEK (Callahan County). Deep Creek, also known as Asylum Creek, rises twelve miles southeast of Baird in east central Callahan County (at 32°15' N, 99°18' W) and runs north for fifty-five miles to its mouth on Hubbard Creek, in east central Shackelford County (at 32°40' N, 99°11' W). The stream, which is intermittent in Callahan County, traverses rolling hills surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support scrub brush, mesquite, cacti, and grasses.
