Questions: 1) Please describe your recent scrambling experience? 2) Can you drive and take others (how many)? Please answer all questions.

Berta peak has been on my list for a while. There is also the Waterton wildflower festival from June 15-20, so we'll have plenty of wildflowers on our trips. Please note that we won't be buying tickets to attend the official wildflower festival, just looking at all the wildflowers we encounter on this trip!
