Title Harkening Hill from Sharp Top

One man is holding a pair of binoculars, and another man is crouched down with a camera in his hands. A few of the people are looking toward the camera. Harkening Hill, one of the Peaks of Otter, is visible in the background of the image, and the Blue Ridge Parkway appears to circle around this side of the peak.
