PETERS CREEK (Burnet County). Peters Creek rises six miles southwest of Burnet in northwestern Burnet County (at 30°43' N, 98°18' W). The stream, intermittent in its upper reaches, flows west for seven miles to its mouth on the Colorado River, a mile below Roy Inks Dam (at 30°43' N, 98°23' W). The terrain is generally low rolling to flat with local deep dissections; the soil is shallow and stony; and the vegetation consists primarily of oak, juniper, cacti, and mesquite.
