In March, my wife and I took a trip to New Zealand and Aus­tralia. Pic­tured is the Three Sis­ters sand­stone rock for­ma­tion on Echo Point in the Blue Moun­tains out­side of Syd­ney.

The Three Sis­ters are, from left, Meehni, Wim­lah and Gunnedoo from the Ka­toomba tribe. One leg­end has it that they were for­bid­den by tribal law to marry three war­riors from the Ne­pean tribe. A ma­jor tribal battle broke out. To pro­tect the sis­ters, an el­der turned them into stone. Dur­ing com­bat, the el­der was killed. No one could turn the sis­ters back into peo­ple.
