Three Sisters, Two Seasons

in hive-114105 •  3 months ago 

There are three cute little mountains near where I am currently living. I've always heard them called the "Three Sisters" because they are so close together and similar in size. They're not very big, as they are situated in the piedmont (the foot of the mountains) where the larger mountains give way to smaller mountains and rolling foothills. But, these three are definitely steeper and larger than mere hills and the surrounding countryside.

The entire Appalachian Mountain range is lower than many other ranges because it is much older that many other mountain ranges and has been worn-down by the erosive action of wind and rain over time. The highest peak is Mount Mitchell, at 6684 feet (2037 m) above sea level. But at the edge of the mountain range, the mountains are much smaller. One of the Three Sisters is only about 1600 feet (488 m) in elevation, and the other two are about 1700 feet (518 m) in elevation. I've always thought they made a pretty little group against the landscape.

The above photo was taken on a recent spring day, about one mile (1.6 km) from the nearest of the three mountains (the one on the right). We are technically still in 'lockdown' status here due to COVID-19 and only allowed to go out for essentials, but I hoped the 'long route' to the store would be acceptable and I had no problems, thankfully. Plus, I was alone and did not get out of the car, as this photo was made from the open car window.

At a greater distance of about 3.5 miles (5.6 km) from that closest mountain, the following photo shows a lovely view. The Three Sisters are there on the left, and Glassy Mountain is on the right. I love this view so much! 😊

From the same vantage point as in the above photo, I captured the following shot a few years ago during the autumn season, with beautiful color on the trees in the foreground! This is one of my favorite captures of The Three Sisters!

Actually, the above image is a detail from a wider-angle shot, shown below, with the Three Sisters near the center and Glassy Mountain on the right-side of the scene.

This is the location that I am pinning to the map on Pinmapple.com, the map for posts on the blockchain! It is fun to pin posts of landscapes, monuments, and other permanent features that are mentioned in posts, and it is quite enjoyable to scan the map and see posts about other areas of interest!

Look at all those exciting destinations,
all visible in posts on the blockchain,
thanks to the charming Mr. @pinmapple!

Great job! It always makes us happy if we make people happy 🙂 cheers, @lizanomadsoul

How incredibly attractive. I can see why you love the sisters.

We have little mountains around here, too. They are always black and sharp and forbidding. It's the difference of their relative ages. I guess I have gotten softer and more mellow as I've aged...

Indeed a paradise explored

The three sisters seem charming, thank you for the lovely introduction! Some beautiful photos, I especially love the clouds in that first one, the marbled swirl of sky is reminiscent of the surface of a stream, the rippled waves and twisting eddies in beautiful tones of grey.

Those autumn views are so stunning, lucky you to live near such beautiful landscape and see them change throughout the year

Beautiful mountain ranges that surround you! Very nice captures!

Being together like that reminds me we have "Three Sisters" in our Karroo region. Lovely photography in different seasons showing change.

Taking the longer route to enjoy being away from home not a bad idea!

Lovely mountains. I would like to live close the mountains. Amazing photos! 💜

Hello my dear friend @thekittygirl

I loved this post. The photos are excellent and the information very good.

Thank you for showing us such a beautiful landscape.

A hug

Beautiful pictures!

A beautiful view of the three sisters.

Three sisters is a great name for three mountains sitting side-by-side. In fact there is such a mountain range, so named, in central Oregon. We used to visit when I was growing up. I still have a sister (and in fact I have three sisters) who is living near there now.

I love the two pictures taken in the same spot in different seasons!

Wa, you are so blessed to live close to those mountains! I'm being jelly over here! Haha 😄

The three sisters look very happy and very much settled there, I just love the mountains and the hills but valleys too for that matter. We live in a beautiful world don't we!

The three sisters are simply stunning in all seasons. It has to make you wonder what their parents looked like. ;)

Thank you for sharing the view!

I've been there once upon a time. My friend got married in Bend, Oregon many years ago and we drove to the Three Sisters in a rented car.

I summon the Khmerican Family Abroad (@Sreypov & @KidSisters) to drop by and support the PHC Daily Reblog.

Beautiful mountains.
