TWIN SISTER PEAKS. The Twin Sister Peaks are six miles southeast of Lometa in southwestern Lampasas County (at 31°08' N, 98°22' W). At an elevation of 1,619 feet above sea level, both summits rise 200 feet above nearby Browns Creek and were probably named for their similarity in appearance. They stand in an area of the Grand Prairies characterized by steeply to moderately sloping hills and shallow, stony, sandy, and clayey loams. Vegetation consists primarily of grasses and open stands of live oak and Ashe juniper.
