LONG HOLLOW. Long Hollow, a hollow with an intermittent creek, begins (at 29°16' N, 99°36' W) three miles southeast of Knippa and two miles south of U.S. Highway 90 West in southeastern Uvalde County, and runs south eleven miles to the Frio River (at 29°09' N, 99°33' W) twelve miles southeast of Uvalde. The local terrain alternates between steep to gently sloping and flat to rolling with steep margins and is surfaced by deep loams and clays that support scrub brush and grasses interspersed with pecans and willows.
