NINETEEN DRAW. Nineteen Draw (once known as Ellis Draw), a valley with an intermittent stream, begins in south central Pecos County (at 30°26' N, 102°57' W) on the eastern edge of the Glass Mountains and runs northeast for twenty-six miles to a point (at 30°37' N, 102°37' W) on Monument Draw, a mile north of U.S. Highway 385 in the central part of the county. The local terrain varies from flat to rolling to steeply sloping. The land is surfaced by caliche and wash deposits with an upper layer of light reddish-brown to brown sands and clay loams. There are some patches of rough stony ground. Area vegetation includes scrub brush, creosote bush, cacti, and some sparse grasses. The draw was probably named for its distance from another landmark.
