SALT CREEK (Stonewall County). Salt Creek rises in northwestern Stonewall County four miles east of the Kent and south of the King county lines (at 33°20' N, 100°27' W). The intermittent stream flows north, through remote ranchland, for six miles to its mouth on Salt Croton Creek, just north of the Stonewall-King county line (at 33°24' N, 100°24' W). The surrounding moderately steep slopes have locally high relief and are surfaced by shallow to moderately deep silt loams that support mesquite and grasses.
