LITTLE BLANCO CREEK. Little Blanco Creek rises eight miles from Utopia in northeastern Uvalde County (at 29°33' N, 99°34' W) and runs south 16½ miles to its mouth on Blanco Creek, three miles west of the intersection of Farm roads 127 and 30 (at 29°21' N, 99°34' W). The creek rises in terrain characterized by steep slopes and benches and a land surface of exposed limestone bedrock with some shallow to very shallow gravelly loamy and clayey soils. In the stream's middle reaches the terrain changes to steep to gently sloping, surfaced by deep loam and clay. Near its mouth, Little Blanco Creek crosses rolling prairie surfaced by shallow gravelly loam. Vegetation growing in the vicinity of the stream includes grasses, juniper, live oak, mesquite, and scrub brush.
