Geo 365: Jan. 30, Day 30: North and Middle Sisters

A few miles farther up the road, there's a pull-out on the south side (right, as you drive east) of the road, with a glorious view of North and Middle Sisters. North Sister is older, Middle Sister is younger. South Sister, which is hidden behind Middle Sister from this viewpoint, is younger still. A smallish lake in its summit crater is Oregon's highest elevation lake, and an example of a true "crater lake" (as opposed to a caldera lake).
