HALL CREEK (Donley County). Hall (Halls) Creek rises two miles southwest of Clarendon in southwestern Donley County (at 34°55' N, 100°57' W) and runs southwest for seven miles to its mouth on Mulberry Creek (at 34°50' N, 101°01' W). It was probably named for Jack Hall, an Amarillo cattleman who worked at one time as a bookkeeper for the JA Ranch, where the stream is located. Hall Creek traverses terrain that changes from flat to rolling, with some local escarpments, moderately steep slopes, and locally high relief. Native vegetation consists of mesquite brush and grasses in soils that change in composition from mostly deep, fine sandy loams to shallow to moderately deep silt loams.
