My head is on fire

I made the unfortunately bad decision to not bring my wide brimmed Tilley hat with me to the snowfields today, and then forgot to put sunscreen on my face. So I guess I’m at about 50/50 when it comes to good judgment calls since I did bring my snowshoes and gaiters (instead of a Hawaiian shirt and flip flops as mentioned yesterday), which were definitely needed, despite it being 55 degrees and 9887 ft of elevation.

  1. But really, what is more St. Paddy’s than a fair-skinned red-bearded Irishman getting sunburnt?

    ak, the part I really hate about reflected sunlight sunburn is the eyelids right under the eyebrows.
    I’ve not gotten that from snow before, but dorked a few times out on the water all day.
