MASON CREEK (Kerr County). Mason Creek rises four miles south of Center Point in southeastern Kerr County (at 29°52' N, 99°04' W) and runs south for 10½ miles, through Kerr and Bandera counties, to its mouth on Bandera Creek, 1½ miles northeast of Bandera (at 29°45' N, 99°03' W). Mason Creek's major tributary is Little Mason Creek, which rises five miles southeast of Center Point (at 29°52' N, 99°01' W) and runs southwest for 5½ miles to join Mason Creek five miles northeast of Bandera (at 29°48' N, 99°02' W). Both creeks originate in steep slopes and limestone benches surfaced by shallow clay soils that support live oaks and Ashe junipers. Mesquite becomes prominent in the lower regions, where the terrain is generally flatter, stonier, and locally dissected.
