More Timp info
Cameryn, Penny and Emerald. All about 2 years of age.
We had quite a few adults to help out carrying kiddos, but this hike would be plenty difficult just carrying one's self. We had a 12, 10, 6 and 4 year old with us too. Daisy and Mike even carried Luke who is under 1. Daisy was breastfeeding in the caves and a couple of us were changing diapers in there too! What a wild adventure! Only the Tross family is tough enough to take on this kind of family activity... I am glad I could be a part or it, but I certainly don't recommend taking children under 5 years old. And if you do, don't pay to tour the caves... do about half the hike with the toddlers and then come back down. I think a big incentive for us to keep on going was because we all paid for the tour, but the tour is at the very top of the mountain.
