MARIANA CREEK. Mariana (Mariano) Creek rises 1½ miles north of Fairview in western Wilson County (at 29°08' N, 98°20' W) and runs southeast for eleven miles to its mouth on Picosa Creek, two miles west of Floresville (at 29°07' N, 98°12' W). It traverses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses.
