FOURMILE DRAW (REEVES COUNTY)
FOURMILE DRAW (Reeves County). Fourmile Draw, a valley with an intermittent stream, begins 1½ miles southeast of Cottonwood Tank in western Reeves County (at 31°35' N, 103°58' W) and runs northeast for nineteen miles to its mouth on the Pecos River, 2½ miles south of Mason Station on the northeastern edge of the county (at 31°46' N, 103°49' W). Threemile Draw joins Fourmile Draw two miles northeast of TP Tank in northwestern Reeves County. Fourmile Draw crosses an area of steep to gentle slopes with alluvial fans and mountain wash materials of sand, gravel, and mud. Local vegetation includes scrub brush, sparse grasses, and cacti. Fourmile Draw may have been named for the width of its flow at flood stage.
