THIRD CREEK. Third Creek rises ten miles southwest of Darrouzett in northwestern Lipscomb County (at 36°21' N, 100°24' W) and runs south for six miles to its mouth on Wolf Creek, seven miles south of Lipscomb (at 36°15' N, 100°24' W). The creek flows through terrain that varies from flat to rolling, with local escarpments. Native vegetation consists of mesquite, sand sage, and shin oak brush in deep, fine sandy loams.
