RED BLUFF CREEK. Red Bluff Creek rises three miles north of Carta Valley in extreme southwest Edwards County (at 29°52' N, 100°34' W) and runs southwest for forty miles to its mouth on Dry Devils River, four miles north of Devils River Ranch in east central Val Verde County (at 29°48' N, 100°56' W). The local countryside is flat and occasionally deeply and densely dissected. The surface of shallow, stony soils and sandy and clay loams supports oak, juniper, mesquite, water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
