LANDRETH DRAW. Landreth Draw, a valley with an intermittent stream, rises in southeastern Ector County (at 31°42' N, 102°23' W) and runs southwest thirty-eight miles to its mouth on the Pecos River, 2½ miles west of Bayview oilfield in southeastern Crane County (at 31°14' N, 102°28' W). Its course crosses flat to steep-sloped terrain characterized by caliche, windblown sand, sand dunes, and wash deposits. Soils in the area are generally dark brown to reddish-brown sands, sandy loams, and clay and calcareous clay loams. Local vegetation includes scrub brush, creosote bush, cacti, grasses, and scattered oak mottes.
