The windy, chilling effects of Frankenstorm were felt in the wind as some 24 determined hikers from Cumberland Transit and Nashville hiking Meetup put on their woolens, and donned gloves, jackets and scarves to experience a full October moon at Edwin Warner Park.
Arriving at Picnic Shelter 9 off of Vaughn Road after sunset, the hikers and two canine friends turned on their flashlights and headed up the hill into the moonlit woods. The chill of the air in the dark woods provided a Halloween feel to the hike.
Hike leader and event coordinator Michael D Hughes from Cumberland Transit set a moderately brisk pace for the nearly four-mile walk which kept hearts beating at a steady rate for the almost two-hour hike, an excellent form of aerobic exercise.
Aerobic activities such as hiking strengthen the respiratory muscles, strengthen the heart muscle and improve its efficiency, improve circulation, reduce blood pressure, help control weight, promote healthy skin care, and improve overall health.
