My first trail - my first (three) crashes ...

Nothing serious, but I need help on switchbacks!

It was fun. I was on a hardtail that is new to me. I set myself up wrong for a really easy righthander on the trail from the parking lot to the real trail and found myself faced with jumping a 2-foot log. I made it but that should tell you want sort of beginner I am. I was reacting all day to where my line and bike ended up instead of choosing where I wanted to go. By the end of the 15 miles of riding I was staying on the trail and upright so I call it success!!
