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.

Inside of his nose, neck/ears...armpits - places where reflection off snow can really bite.

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.

PMing will not get you an answer people. If there is no right guess I'll let you
know the correct answer by Monday, maybe.

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)

I'll double down on this guess.

one guess: Behind the knees in the bend spot in the knee joint.

another more creative guess: he was eating snow and he froze his soft palate to the point of 2nd degree burns and bleeding in his mouth.

In attempting to solve a riddle, which this kinda is, I guess we should instead start with basic questions. Most of us are assuming this is a sunburn, but that was never stated. So, mavrick, were the burns caused from sun exposure? Are we aloud to ask a question like that?
