Abstract. Gerald W. Williams CollectionDuring Pliocene time a cluster of basaltic and basaltic andesite shield volcanoes was built in the\ud Three Sisters region. Included in this cluster are the North Sister, Little Brother, Husband, Wife,\ud Sphinx and Broken Top, the radial dikes Three Sisters is one of three active volcanic centers that lie close to rapidly growing communities and resort areas in Central Oregon.

The major composite volcanoes of this area are clustered near the center of the region and include South Sister, Middle Sister, and Broken Top. Additionally, hundreds of mafic volcanoes are scattered throughout the Three Sisters :// Three Sisters are a cluster of volcanoes, composed of North Sister, Middle Sister, and South Sister.

They are located approximately 25 km SW of Sisters, OR. North Sister is considered extinct, and Middle Sister has not erupted years.

The Three Sisters are the centerpiece of a region of closely grouped volcanic peaks which form an exception to the typical mile (64 km) to mile (97 km) spacing between volcanoes elsewhere in the In Oregon, the Cascade Range is commonly divided into two physiographic subprovinces—the Western Cascades and the High Cascades—which differ markedly in their degree of dissection, owing mainly to the near absence of Quaternary and Pliocene volcanoes in the Western Cascades.
