WIND RIVER. Wind River rises in the rolling plains of southwestern Hall County (at 34°24' N, 100°52' W) and flows southeast for sixteen miles into the North Pease River, on the Motley county line (at 34°19' N, 100°38' W). It crosses loamy soils and over mesquite and grass rangeland in the western portion of the Mill Iron range.
