HARRIS CREEK (McLennan County). Harris Creek rises four miles west of McGregor in western McLennan County (at 31°25' N, 97°28' W) and runs east for fifteen miles to its mouth on the South Bosque River, two miles southeast of the McGregor municipal airport (at 31°28' N, 97°17' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support juniper, oak, and cacti in the creek's upper reaches and water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses in its lower.
