DRY HOLLOW. Dry Hollow, which has an intermittent stream known as Dry Branch, begins eighteen miles southwest of Paint Rock in far east central Tom Green County (at 31°20' N, 100°07' W) and runs northeast for 15½ miles to its mouth on the Concho River, 5½ miles west of Paint Rock (at 31°31' N, 100°01' W). Local terrain of rolling prairie is surfaced by clay loams that support grasses, oaks, junipers, and mesquite.
