PALO BLANCO CREEK (Jim Hogg County). Palo Blanco Creek rises at Mesquite Creek three miles southeast of Hebbronville in northern Jim Hogg County (at 27°17' N, 98°37' W) and runs southeast for fifty-nine miles, passing through Duval County and into northwestern Brooks County, then through Falfurrias and Charco Salado Lake, before reaching its mouth on Cayo Lake, three miles southwest of Sarita in northwestern Kenedy County (at 27°10' N, 97°52' W). It traverses flat to gently rolling terrain with local depressions, surfaced by shallow clay and sandy loams or loose sands that support scrub brush and grasses.
