Bexar County (BAY-har), in the interior belt of the Coastal Plain of South Central Texas, is crossed by the Balcones Escarpment. The area northwest of the escarpment, about one-eighth of the county, lies on the Edwards Plateau in high, hilly country, the source of numerous springs and artesian and underground wells. The San Antonio River and San Pedro Creek originate in such springs. The San Antonio is the county's principal river, and into it flow a number of smaller streams, including the Medina River and Medio, Leon, Helotes, Salado, and Calvares creeks. Cibolo Creek forms the boundary between Bexar and Comal counties on the north and Guadalupe on the east.
