MICHIGAN DRAW. Michigan Draw, through which flows an intermittent stream, begins a mile northeast of Chispa Mountain and four miles east of Lobo in southwestern Culberson County (at 30°49' N, 104°41' W) and runs northeast for twenty-three miles before running dry a mile south of Interstate Highway 10 and U.S. Highway 80 and three miles southwest of Plateau (at 31°02' N, 104°37' W). The streambed traverses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by variable soils that support scrub brush and sparse grasses.
