DEEP CREEK (Uvalde County). Deep Creek rises 4½ miles west of the junction of Farm Road 1051 and U.S. Highway 83 and four miles south of Reagan Wells in north central Uvalde County (at 29°29' N, 99°51' W) and runs southeast for ten miles to its mouth on the Dry Frio River, a quarter mile east of Highway 83 (at 29°25' N, 99°45' W). In its upper reaches the creek traverses flat terrain with locally deep and dense dissection, surfaced by shallow and stony clay and loam soils that support grasses, oak, juniper, and some mesquite. Toward the mouth of the creek the terrain becomes steep to gently sloping and the vegetation consists mostly of scrub brush and scattered grasses.
