Care to take guess?

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

If he had to be evaced, either he couldn't see or he couldn't walk. So I guess he suffered from snow blindness, with blisters on his eyelids. How's that for creative ?

I was close, wrong end.:) I need to watch the sun exposure when out on trips in the winter, the last few times my eyes have been a little puffy, like I had bad allergies.
Piece of cake.

OK... his knees - they swelled so much he couldn't bend his legs

This is on the outside of his body, right? It's not an ORGAN, is it? (I can't imagine how that could be possible, though)
