Nope, nowhere near that area.

Are there peaks with real names on the topographic map in that image?

Oldranger is basically correct. He got the peak names right, and the specific location is within a mile from Harriet Lake, and I doubt anyone will get any closer. It was actually taken on the little flat spur ridge between two unnamed lakelets about 6/10 of a mile southwest of Harriet Lake. If you are attending the meet-up this summer and coming from Isberg Pass, I recommend you leave the High Trail near the Triple Peak Fork trail junction and take the easy cross-country route along the meadowy benches below Isberg Peak to Harriet Lake, then down Foerster Creek back to Foerster Lake and the High Trail, to see beautiful scenery like this.

Oldranger - your turn to post.

I posted my response without looking at a map (probably just as Rogue did) after posting and reviewing my pics of the area I knew it had to be w and near the first ridge you cross after you leave the the high trail heading for Harriet. My pick lacks a lot of clues and unless someone has actually been there it will be difficult to identify and it does not have a name.
