Nestled up in the Frio Canyon region of the Texas Hill Country are three highways that are known as the Three Sisters, or the Twisted Sisters. Roughly a hundred miles long, the FM 335/336/337 loop is popular among weekend warriors and motorcycle enthusiasts for its sharp turns, steep climbs, deep valleys and scenic views as the roads pass through some of the hill-iest of the Hill Country. Compared to many of the mountain passes through California or Colorado, this is pre-school-level stuff - but in this part of the country and for hundreds of miles around, the Three Sisters is the most 'challenging' roadways around. This spot is near sunset, along a deep road cut on FM 337 between Vanderpool and Medina overlooking Anderson Hollow; the structure in the background is actually a large barn for a buffalo herd.
