GAP CREEK (Brown County). Gap Creek rises four miles southeast of May in northeastern Brown County (at 31°56' N, 98°53' W) and runs south for seven miles to its mouth on Salt Creek, five miles west of Blanket (at 31°50' N, 98°53' W). It traverses level terrain at 1,500 to 1,550 feet above sea level, surfaced by moderately deep to deep loams that support scrub, tall grasses, and some live oak.
