In dressing for a hike one must bear
In mind the production of heat by the
body. The first few minutes in the
open will prove the most trying. After
that the working muscles will make a
lot of heat. The colder the day the
swifter the gait, and the greater
amount of heat made. There is con
slderable danger of overdressing by
reason of failure to make allowance
for the production of heat. The fin
gers and toes may be cold even though
walking has warmed the remainder of
the body. A ' dozen or more deep
breaths are effective in warming up
cold feet.
