GHOLSON CREEK. Gholson Creek rises one mile east of Pecan Wells and just west of Farm Road 2005 in west Hamilton County (at 31°36' N, 98°21' W) and runs southeast for eleven miles to its mouth on Cowhouse Creek, one mile north of Shive (31°38' N, 98°13' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It traverses variable terrain surfaced by shallow, stony clay loams that support juniper, oak, grasses, chaparral, and cacti.
