SUNNY GLEN. Sunny Glen, an intermittent stream, rises a mile southwest of Crenshaw Mountain and two miles west of the Brewster county line in northeastern Presidio County (at 30°21' N, 103°50' W) and runs northeast for seven miles to its mouth on an unnamed stream three miles east of the Presidio-Brewster county line and three miles west of the Alpine Municipal Airport (at 30°23' N, 103°45' W). It crosses rugged terrain surfaced by shallow, stony soils that support Mexican buckeye, walnut, persimmon, desert willow, scrub brush, and sparse grasses. Sunny Glen was formerly considered the upper portion of Paisano Creek.
