North and Middle Sister


This is the view of the North and Middle Sister from the Santiam Pass, from north of the mountains. The South Sister is out of sight a little farther away. The North Sister and Middle Sister are closer together. I shot this while on my way to visit my sister in Terribone, over the Cascades from here. The burn area in the foreground was the result of an extensive forest fire in these mountains in 2007.

An interesting painting of the same two peaks is seen at this link -
