DEER CREEK (Burnet County). Deer Creek rises nineteen miles northwest of Burnet in northwestern Burnet County (at 30°56' N, 98°19' W) and runs west for ten miles to its mouth on the Colorado River, a mile southeast of Indian Mountain (at 30°57' N, 98°25' W). The creek, intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses generally flat terrain with local deep dissections, surfaced by shallow, stony soil that supports oak, juniper, and mesquite.
