A thin layer of ice covers the surface of La Porte's Clear Lake, leaving the three locally famous cypress trees surrounded. Sometimes on shore, sometimes submerged, the cypress trees are sometimes referred to as three sisters, or triplets.
The trees are said to have been planted in memory of three young girls who met with an untimely death. But they could have been planted in memory of three children who fell through the thin ice of clear lake in 1928.
Another cypress tree stands a few hundred feet away, so perhaps they just grew naturally. Either way, the three sisters inspire countless people in the city of La Porte.
