South Sister is the youngest and highest of a trio of closely grouped mountains called the Three Sisters. It is a very young volcano, and is characterized by a well-preserved summit cone with a circular crater at the top. In late summer of most years there is enough snowmelt in the crater to form a small lake, the highest body of water in the state of Oregon.
