After a lot of huffing and puffing the win finally cleared the low clouds and this was the view of the Three Sisters from the Skyway.

The Three Sisters is essentially an unusual rock formation representing three sisters who according to Aboriginal legend were turned to stone.



Each of the Three Sisters stand at 922, 918 & 906 metres tall, respectively.
The Legend


The Aboriginal dream-time legend has it that three sisters, 'Meehni', 'Wimlah' and 'Gunnedoo' lived in the Jamison Valley as members of the Katoomba tribe.

These beautiful young ladies had fallen in love with three brothers from the Nepean tribe, yet tribal law forbade them to marry.

The brothers were not happy to accept this law and so decided to use force to capture the three sisters causing a major tribal battle.

As the lives of the three sisters were seriously in danger, a witchdoctor from the Katoomba tribe took it upon himself to turn the three sisters into stone to protect them from any harm. While he had intended to reverse the spell when the battle was over, the witchdoctor himself was killed. As only he could reverse the spell to return the ladies to their former beauty, the sisters remain in their magnificent rock formation as a reminder of this battle for generations to come.

We were so glad the weather gods had been good to us. This is what we wanted to see and though it was hazy in the distance, the Three Sisters were clear.

@Brie1648 - Hi Bren, I thought you might like to see this photo. I can't get over how well the birdies made this nest and finished the top layer with my sweet boys' fur. ♥

What wonderful formations!

When Captain Vancouver first visited Vancouver, Canada, he spotted a mountain with two camel humps on it. He called it The Lyons after a family he knew in England. Most people now call them The Lions and our football (not soccer) team is named after them. However, the local indigenous tribe traced their history and legends of that mountain back through the mists of time...and it's the same story as yours...but about two sisters.
