SALT CREEK (Kent County). Salt Creek rises two miles southeast of Jayton in extreme eastern Kent County (at 33°14' N, 100°33' W). The wet-weather draw runs northeast for eight miles to its mouth on Croton Creek, ten miles northwest of Peacock in northwest Stonewall County (at 33°18' N, 100°27' W). Most of the surrounding area is rangeland. The moderately steep slopes and locally high relief are surfaced by shallow to moderately deep silt loams. Vegetation consists primarily of mesquite and grasses.
