SANDY CREEK (Milam County). Sandy Creek rises in southeastern Milam County (at 30°39' N, 96°55' W) near Taylor Mountain, four miles southwest of Milano. It runs north for eighteen miles to its mouth (at 30°50' N, 96°57' W) on the Little River two miles south of Cameron. The flat to rolling prairie has local shallow depressions; the clay and sandy loams support mesquite and grasses near the upper reaches of the creek and water-tolerant hardwoods and conifers in the lower reaches.
