The Nine Sisters are a chain of volcanic plugs that extend from San Luis Obispo to Morro Bay, California. This photo showing parts of four of the Nine Sisters was taken from atop Cerro San Luis Obispo (1,292 feet or 394 m tall). The sisters', ranging in height from 1,559 ft (475 m) to 576 ft (176 m), formed over 20 million years ago but have been extinct for thousands of years. Most of them have scenic hiking trails -- that's why I visited. Photo taken on January 5, 2018.

Photo Details: Camera: LG Electronics LGL31L; Exposure Time 0.0005s (1/2083); Aperture ƒ/2.2; ISO equivalent 100; Focal Length 3.5mm.
