JESSE JAMES DRAW. Jesse James Draw, a small wet-weather wash, rises just north of U.S. Highway 62/70 in west central Motley County (at 34°00' N, 100°57' W) and runs north for four miles to its mouth on Lost Canyon, eight miles west of Matador (at 34°01' N, 100°57' W). The draw was once within the Matador Ranch holdings in an area used primarily for grazing. It traverses an area of gently rolling hills with moderately steep slopes, surfaced by shallow to moderately deep silt loams that support mesquite and grasses.
