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.

Depending on the time of year, this person might have been hot, hiking in the snow and as some skiers are prone to do, that their shirt off to catch a few rays and to cool down. Also, at altitude, people don't realize the ozone thins out quite fast and if you aren't careful can get a bad burn in less than half and hour and worse if care is not taken. When I worked at Lake Tahoe in the 70's, sun bathers were getting burned all the time. I'm saying their chest was badly burned and they were in intense pain. There, a qualified answer, but still a guess.:)
Piece of cake.

Ass cheeks as his shorts were loose for the trip through the snow. Rosabella, i already guessed scalp and Mav said, "nope."

Mav, you better come clean soon as Eric's riddles aren't so hard to solve. :)

there arent many body parts left to id. we had scalp, nose, ears, mouth, knees, back of knees, shins, chest, feet, eyes, eyelids, cheeks, junk, etc. If this guy had to be airlifted because of his palms getting burned, i might have to complain..

Ahhh, but I said "brain". We've already guessed just about everything external other than the really obvious sunburn areas like shoulders, etc., and they've not been correct. Except "someone was very, very close", I'm going to guess that it's something internal. (if that's possible?)

Maverick, I can't believe you're going to make us wait 'til tomorrow :)

I've read that skiers have burned the roof of their mouths from the reflection off the snow. That's my guess!
