GLENN CREEK. Glenn Creek, also known as the Green River, rises seven miles south of the Southern Pacific tracks in southeastern Hudspeth County (at 30°53' N, 104°59' W) and runs south for twenty-one miles to its mouth on the Rio Grande, four miles west of the intersection of the Hudspeth, Culberson, and Jeff Davis county lines (at 30°40' N, 104°59' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches and dry for most of its length. Its course traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
