GARCIAS CREEK. Garcias Creek rises four miles southwest of Santa Catarina in east central Starr County (at 26°34' N, 98°38' W) and runs south for twenty-eight miles to its mouth on the Rio Grande, two miles south of Garciasville and four miles west of Alto Bonito (at 26°19' N, 98°42' W). The area around the creek has flat to gently rolling terrain, with local depressions, surfaced by shallow clay loams that support scrub brush and grass.
