DRY CREEK (YOUNG COUNTY)
DRY CREEK (Young County). Dry Creek rises four miles southwest of Olney near the Olney Municipal Airport in northwestern Young County (at 33° 20' N, 98°49' W) and runs southeast for eight miles to its mouth on Salt Creek, six miles west of Jean (at 33°19' N, 98°43' W). As its name suggests, the creek consists primarily of a draw. It traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay, mud, and sandy soils that support water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses. Herndon Springs, on Dry Creek near Orth, had stopped flowing by the 1930s. Much of the creek basin is within the Orth oilfield.
