SALT CREEK (Culberson County). Salt Creek rises five miles northwest of the Rustler Springs railroad terminus and sulfur plant in Rustler Hills, northeastern Culberson County (at 31°44' N, 104°12' W), and runs northeast for thirty-one miles, across Reeves County, to its mouth on the Pecos River, five miles southeast of the Red Bluff Reservoir on the Reeves-Loving county line (at 31°53' N, 103°53' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It traverses flat terrain with local steep slopes, surfaced by shallow and stony to moderately deep clay loams that support creosote bush, cacti, sparse grasses, and some scrub brush.
