LITTLE ARKANSAS CREEK. Little Arkansas Creek rises near the north bluff of Palo Duro Canyon in western Armstrong County (at 34°56' N, 101°28' W) and runs south for three miles into Dry Creek (at 34°53' N, 101°28' W). It was part of the JA Ranch properties. The area is characterized by moderately sloping terrain, shallow loamy soils, and vegetation consisting primarily of mesquite and grasses.
