RED ALECK CANYON CREEK. Red Aleck Canyon Creek rises five miles southwest of Hudd in northeast Scurry County (at 32°54' N, 100°46' W) and runs north for five miles to its mouth on Cox Hollow, just south of the Scurry-Kent county line (at 32°57' N, 100°44' W). From an elevation of 2,200 feet at its origin, the creek drops some 300 feet during its course. The surrounding dissected gullies and low hills are surfaced by shallow soils with sparse vegetation.
