FIELD CREEK. Field Creek, a free-flowing stream, rises 1½ miles northeast of the location where the Mason, Llano, and San Saba county lines meet in southwestern San Saba County (at 30°57' N, 98°58' W) and flows southeast for eight miles to its mouth on San Fernando Creek in Llano County (at 30°52' N, 98°56' W). The stream crosses an area of flat to rolling uplands with live oak, mesquite, Ashe juniper, and grasses growing in shallow to moderately deep sandy and clayey loam soils.
