HART DRAW (Reeves County). Hart Draw, through which flows an intermittent stream, begins in the foothills of the Barrilla Mountains in extreme southern Reeves County (at 30°57' N, 103°39' W) and runs northeast for nine miles to its mouth on Sandia Creek, eight miles east of Balmorhea (at 30°59' N, 103°38' W). The draw crosses desert terrain and canyonland of volcanic rock, with mountain wash deposits of sand, gravel, and mud. Soils in the area are clay loams and generally light reddish-brown to brown sands. Local vegetation includes scrub brush, sparse grasses, creosote bush, and cacti.
