LAS RAICES CREEK
LAS RAICES CREEK. Las Raices (Spanish for "roots") Creek rises thirty-four miles north of Laredo in northeastern Webb County (at 28°05' N, 99°35' W) and runs northeast for forty-six miles to its mouth on the Nueces River, thirteen miles southeast of Cotulla in south central La Salle County (at 28°09' N, 99°02' W). The surrounding flat terrain has locally shallow depressions and is surfaced by expansive clays that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. Twohig, one of the earliest settlements in La Salle County, was on the creek twelve miles south of Cotulla.
