RESACA DE LOS FRESNOS. Resaca de los Fresnos rises five miles southeast of La Feria and one mile east of State Route 506 in southwestern Cameron County (at 26°07' N, 97°45' W) and runs sixty-one miles northeast to its mouth on a ditch three miles northwest of Bayview (at 26°09' N, 97°30' W). It traverses low-rolling to flat terrain surfaced by deep to shallow sandy and clay loams that support scrub brush and cacti. Fresno is Spanish for "ash tree."
