JOHNSON CREEK (Llano County). Johnson Creek rises about five miles east of the town of Field Creek in extreme northwestern Llano County (at 30°55' N, 98°51' W) and runs southeast for 17½ miles, becoming broad and sandy as it approaches its mouth on the Llano River, two miles west of Llano (at 30°45' N, 98°44' W). The stream, intermittent in its upper reaches, is fed by numerous tributaries. It traverses an area of the Llano basin characterized by flat to rolling terrain, with locally deep dissection and escarpments. Along its upper reaches the soils are shallow and stony; near its mouth the soils are sandy loams and clay loams.
