ROCK DRAW. Rock Draw, the bed of an intermittent stream called Rock Creek, rises near State Highway 86 in western Briscoe County (at 34°27' N, 101°27' W) and flows north eight miles to join Tule Creek just east of Mackenzie Reservoir (at 34°33' N, 101°26' W). It runs through an area of steeply to moderately sloping hills surfaced by shallow, stony clay and sandy loam soils that support oak, mesquite, and grasses. The draw is on land formerly part of the JA Ranch's Tule Division.
