WRIGHT'S CREEK. Wright's Creek rises eleven miles north of Llano in north central Llano County (at 30°54' N, 98°39' W). At one time it was a perennial stream, and a location on the creek was considered as a possible site for the county seat when Llano County was organized in 1856; since then its flow has dramatically decreased. The stream follows a southerly course for 14½ miles to its mouth on the Llano River, three miles east of Llano (at 30°46' N, 98°37' W). It traverses an area of the Llano Basinqv characterized by flat to rolling terrain, locally dissected and covered with soils that range from sandy to clay loams. Vegetation consists primarily of open stands of live oak and mesquite.
