INDIAN CREEK (Potter County). Indian Creek rises in three branches in northwestern Potter County (at 35°16' N, 101°46' W) and runs north for five miles to its mouth on the Canadian River (at 35°21' N, 101°48' W). The branches flow out of densely dissected gullies and low hills surfaced by shallow soil with sparse vegetation, then unite and pass into an area of moderately steep slopes. Here the soil changes to a combination of shallow to moderately deep silt loams, with vegetation consisting of mesquite and grasses. The stream is in a vast ranching area once included in the old LX Ranch.
