INDIAN CREEK (Kerr County). Indian Creek rises four miles south of Ingram in central Kerr County (at 30°01' N, 99°16' W) and runs northeast for 6½ miles to its mouth on the Guadalupe River at Ingram (at 30°04' N, 99°15' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, cuts through an area of the Edwards Plateau characterized by shallow stony soils and woods of live oak and Ashe juniper. Steep slopes and limestone benches give a stairstep appearance to the landscape along the lower reaches of the creek, where shallow clay loams support open stands of live oak, Ashe juniper, and mesquite.
