RED ARROYO. Red Arroyo rises eight miles southeast of Flomot and eleven miles north of Matador in north central Motley County (at 34°10' N, 100°52' W). The small wet-weather draw runs northeast for three miles before it enters Tom Ball Creek seven miles northeast of Whiteflat (at 34°11' N, 100°50' W). The arroyo is located in an area of moderately steep slopes with locally high relief where mesquite and grasses grow in shallow to moderately deep silt loam soils.
