WHITE CANYON CREEK
WHITE CANYON CREEK. White Canyon Creek rises four miles northeast of Rotan in north central Fisher County (at 32°54' N, 100°26' W). The small wet-weather draw runs north for eight miles to its mouth on the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River, eight miles southeast of the Double Mountains in southwest Stonewall County (at 32°58' N, 100°24' W). The region is made up of oilfields and isolated rangeland. The creek bed drops from an elevation of 1,900 feet to 1,700 feet. The surrounding flat to gently sloping terrain is surfaced by loose sand that supports scrub brush and grasses.
