SKILLET CREEK. Skillet Creek rises in southeastern Gray County (at 35°13' N, 100°40' W) and flows south for ten miles to its mouth on Whitefish Creek in northeastern Donley County (at 35°04' N, 100°37' W). It runs through flat to rolling hills surfaced with deep sandy loam that supports hardwoods, brush, and grasses. On this creek Alfred Rowe built the first headquarters of his RO Ranch, five miles south of McLean.
