GIBSON CREEK (Ochiltree County). Gibson Creek rises in southeastern Ochiltree County (at 36°05' N, 100°39' W) and runs northeast for ten miles to join Wolf Creek in western Lipscomb County (at 36°12' N, 100°32' W). It traverses flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments, surfaced by deep, fine, sandy loams that support hardwood forests, brush, and grasses. The great Panhandle drift fenceqv crossed the upper portion of the creek, which once was part of the Bar CC and Seven K Ranch ranges.
