Hill Blocks View

A few weeks ago I was walking in the Georgetown neighborhood in the evening, some way west of the University near the Georgetown Reservoir. At one point I turned to walk up a hill that was pretty steep by DC standards - and then I saw a sign, and I laughed out loud as soon as I saw it.

Just recently, I showed my Uncle Mike this picture, telling him "If the city thought those signs were necessary in Ketchikan, we'd have thousands of them!" This was his reply:

The hill blocks the view (so don't bother driving up here). Or upcoming is the Hill Blocks viewpoint, famous for its beauty. Or the hill blocks are actually viewing something, which most hill blocks don't do. What they are viewing apparently doesn't matter.
