SAND CREEK (Lipscomb County). Sand Creek rises in southwestern Lipscomb County (at 36°06' N, 100°26' W) and flows northeast for twelve miles, through flat to rolling terrain characterized by deep, fine sandy loams, to its mouth on Wolf Creek, near Lipscomb (at 36 14' N, 100 17' W). The surrounding vegetation is primarily brush and grasses. The spring-fed creek once flowed constantly but is now mostly dry. It was in the heart of the old Seven K range.
