DRY CREEK (Uvalde County). Dry Creek rises five miles west of Montell in far northwestern Uvalde County (at 29°33' N, 100°06' W) and runs southeast for six miles to its mouth on the Nueces River, two miles southwest of Montell (at 29°31' N, 100°02' W). The local terrain is steep to gently sloping and is surfaced in the creek's upper reaches by shallow soils that are gravelly, stony, clayey, or loamy. Along the creek's lower streambed the soils are deep, loamy, and clayey. The vegetation along its course includes juniper, live oak, mesquite, scrub brush, and various grasses.
