Wolf Creek in the northeast corner of the Texas Panhandle is a permanent stream fed by the Ogallala formation. It flows east into Oklahoma and then swings northeast to join the North Canadian River, one of the major tributaries of the Arkansas River system. For the Buried City people, the Wolf Creek Valley was a well-watered and thickly wooded oasis amid the dry grassy sea of the High Plains. Photo by David Hughes.
