MONUMENT DRAW. Monument Draw rises in Lea County, New Mexico (midpoint at 32°27' N, 102°20' W), and enters Texas in southwestern Gaines County. It runs southeast for sixty-two miles across southwestern Gaines County to its mouth on Mustang Draw, near Farm Road 793 and the Hutex oilfield in northeastern Andrews County. The draw passes through rolling terrain surfaced by sand that supports grasses and nongrassy herbs.
