Peaks of Otter

We finally hiked one of the Peaks of Otter, near Bedford, Virginia. We climbed Sharp Top. Even in drab winter, it's a beautiful view. It must be truly stunning when everything is green and lush. We'll definitely return to bag Flat Rock and Harkening Hill.

Early section of the trail is rocky. It's 3.6 miles round trip from the Visitor Center.

Firewood. It's awfully cold and windy up here. Wonder if they got it started?

Looking at Flat Rock, which is slightly higher (3,994 feet) than Sharp Rock (3,862 feet).

Amazing views! Incredible looking stone house. I've seen something like that here in New Hampshire, but not with those views or that kind of climb.
