SEMINOLE DRAW. Seminole Draw rises in extreme western Gaines County one mile south of U.S. Highway 180/62 and east of the Texas-New Mexico state line (at 32°45' N, 103°04' W) and runs southeast for sixty miles, through the flat arid lands of western and central Gaines and northeastern Andrews counties. The draw was formerly fed by numerous active springs. Indian Wells, located on the draw nine miles south of Seminole, was an important camping place in earlier times. Large-scale oilfield drilling and irrigation have dried up most of the area's springs, and the local sandy soils support only mesquite and grasses. The draw merges with Monument Draw (at 32°27' N, 102°20' W) in northeastern Andrews County to form Mustang Draw.
