MINNEOSA CREEK. Minneosa Creek rises in eastern Union and Quay counties, New Mexico (at 35°48' N, 103°20' W), and flows southeast for fifty miles, through southwestern Hartley County, Texas, to its mouth on the Canadian River, in northwestern Oldham County (at 35°30' N, 102°47' W). It crosses through rolling terrain, surfaced by dunes or deep, fine sandy loam that support grasses and brush, to moderately steep slopes surfaced by shallow silt loam that supports mesquite and grasses.
