ROCKY CREEK (Irion County). Rocky Creek, also known as East Rocky Creek, rises in northeast Irion County (at 31°33' N, 100°42' W) and runs south for eight miles to its mouth on the Middle Concho River (at 31°26' N, 100°42' W). The surrounding rolling prairie, at an elevation of 2,000 to 2,210 feet above sea level, is surfaced by shallow to moderately deep clay loam that supports tall grasses, oak, juniper, mesquite, and scrub.
