GUM GULLY. Gum Gully rises about 2½ miles east of Lake Houston in northeastern Harris County (at 29°58' N, 95°06' W) and runs south for five miles to its mouth on Jackson Bayou, 1½ miles north of Tank Lake (at 29°54' N, 95°06' W). The gully cuts through terrain that varies from flat to rolling, with local escarpments; soils in the vicinity are deep, fine sandy loams. In undeveloped areas the native vegetation consists primarily of pine and hardwood forests.
