Trip Report

You know it's been a long winter when Phil and I go up a treed bump with no summit views after work in April. To be fair it was 13 degrees outside as we parked near the municipal building in the small hamlet of Exshaw. Kids were roaming the streets playing their after school games and the sounds of birds chirping over top of happy kids, playing in the warm afternoon sunshine was very pleasant. There's really not much else to say about Exshaw Mountain other than we enjoyed the limited views and the exercise. Be careful where you park! We parked between two "no parking" signs, but had permission from a guy in the municipal building who told me that on weekends and during the summer they have to limit parking near their building since it gets so crammed they can't drive their trucks in or out of the shop.
