Great ride!/busted shoulder

Thought Ild share my first real injury with you all. I rode a trail that starts in an area called "3 Forks" in Blue Ridge Ga yesterday. I rode about 7 miles to get to a hiking shelter where I had lunch and met 3 nice hikers from Atlanta and Agusta. It was a pretty steep climb almost the whole way with lots of wet roots and rocks to ride over. Rode back about 5 miles when I ducked under a fallen tree going about 5mph on a steep down grade when BAM!! The top of my shoulder and collar bone smacked right into it almost flipping me backwards off the bike. It hurt bad. I now have a good sized bruise and a 1 inch gash on the top of my left shoulder and I cant move it to good. It bleed just a bit which was cool. Still I was lucky because if I was about 1-2 inches higher on the bike Im sure it would have either popped my joint loose or broke my collar bone. Cant wait to try it again.
