This old dam is near the point where you start up switchbacks then leave the trail to head straight up the ridge.The north faces of Little and Middle Sister were spectacular from this vantage.Ship's Prow dominates this view from just below the summit. The last short section after this has brief exposure if snow covered.Mount Rundle's two highest peaks are impressive from this unusual angle.I do not usually photograph contrails, but the extreme winds on this day broke this one up into interesting formations.This was probably my favorite view of the day and perhaps the best place of all  to see the Three Sisters.Bright orange lichen was another interesting feature on this trip.Big Sister looks easy to ascend from this angle, but I have been turned back before the summit 3 times on it. The first two were due to bad weather and the last because it was beyond my comfort zone.Spindrift on Mount Lawrence Grassi was mesmerizing to watch.Here are all three of the "Sisters" from the summit.A more complete view of Ship's Prow is also visible from the top.This "S" shaped chunk of ice in Three Sisters Creek caught my attention on the way out.Old wooden flumes are one of the remaining items from the days of coal mining in this area.
