Description Image shows the exterior of the restaurant at Peaks of Otter Lodge. A parking area and a few automobiles are visible to the left of the restaurant. There is a wooden fence in the foreground of the image, likely separating the Blue Ridge Parkway from the surrounding land, and Flat Top Mountain is visible in the background. Image was taken near milepost 85.6, near where Section 1J meets Section 1K of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Image taken by C.E. Westveer. The image was likely taken in the 1960s, after the Peaks of Otter Lodge was constructed, but before the creation of Abbott Lake.
