    Flowers on Cascade Avenue

    Sunflower in Sisters, Oregon

    Favorite thing: The long days and relatively cool temperatures of summer, as experienced here in central Oregon, is ideal for growing flowers. We enjoyed the many plantings we saw throughout the town of Sisters in late August.

    Karen took this photograph of a sunflower growing in a large planter on Cascade Avenue. Since our daughter-in-law, Erin, has a particularly fondness for sunflowers, we had this picture enlarged, framed, and gave it to her as a gift.

    The Three Sisters

    The Sisters, as seen from Sisters, Oregon

    Favorite thing: Sisters, Oregon takes its name from The Three Sisters, triplet volcanic peaks of the Cascade Mountain Range which can be seen from the town. You may have to enlarge this photo to see the third sister, "peaking" from behind the sister to the right. They are individually named South Sister, Middle Sister and North Sister. From the right vantage point, other snowcapped peaks of the Cascades can be seen from Sisters, including Mount Washington.

    Early white pioneers named the three mountains Faith, Hope, and Charity. Nearby are other mountains named Bachelor, Wife, Husband, Little Brother, etc. Seems to me these could be called the Family Mountains of the Cascades.
