SANDY HOLLOW. Sandy Hollow is a valley that begins in the Capote Hills eleven miles southeast of Seguin in Guadalupe County (at 29°29' N, 97°48' W). The four-mile valley stretches in a semicircle, northeast for two miles then curving southeast to a point (at 29°31' N, 97°47' W) twelve miles southeast of Seguin. An intermittent stream flows through Sandy Hollow and has been dammed to form a small lake near Farm Road 466.
