SALT DRAW. Salt Draw, a valley also known as Cayote Creek, rises five miles east of the Culberson county line at the juncture of Hart and Hurds Pass draws in west central Reeves County (at 31°21' N, 104°00' W) and runs east for thirty-six miles to its mouth on Toyah Lake, three miles west of U.S. Highway 285 (at 31°19' N, 103°28' W). Ninemile Draw meets Salt Draw 4½ miles south of Interstate 20. The course of Salt Draw crosses wash deposits, steep to gentle slopes of gypsum anhydrite, and flat terrain with local sandy slopes. The area's light reddish-brown to brown sands, clay loams, and rough stony ground support scrub brush, sparse grasses, creosote bush, and cacti.
