TEHUACANA CREEK (MEDINA COUNTY)
TEHUACANA CREEK (Medina County). Tehuacana Creek rises seven miles south of Hondo in central Medina County (at 29°15' N, 99°11' W) and runs southeast seventeen mile to its mouth on Hondo Creek, six miles west of Moore in Frio County (at 29°03' N, 99°08' W). West Tehuacana and East Tehuacana creeks join Tehuacana Creek within a mile of each other two miles southeast of Yancey. The area is flood-prone, flat to rolling prairie with occasional shallow depressions, surfaced by expansive clays with variable permeability that support grasses and mesquite at the source and water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses at the mouth.
