SAND CREEK (Crosby County). Sand Creek rises at the breaks of the Llano Estacado four miles southeast of Crosbyton in eastern Crosby County (at 33°36' N, 101°12' W) and runs southeast eleven miles to its mouth on the White River Reservoir (at 33°28' N, 101°06' W). It traverses flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments, surfaced by deep, fine sandy loam that supports hardwood trees, conifers, brush, and grasses. The lower creekbed crosses an area of gently sloping to moderately steep slopes and high relief, surfaced by silt loams that support mesquite and grasses.
