- I hiked out to caress the summits of The Three Sisters in the wilderness area, but they would show me no love. A thick fog moved in which prevented me from making the 1/2 mile cross country hike through Sage and Bunchgrass covered lava flows and collapsed lava tubes. When I got far enough away that it was to far to go back and try again, the fog moved off, revealing the saucy siblings.
