It was dumb. Really dumb. I was an idiot. Long story short, I encountered downed trees on a steep downhill trail and just kept riding over, under, and around them. It was getting progressively more gnarly, later in the day, and then it started to rain right before encountering a downed tree that was impassible. Thanks to the Avenza app, I knew where I was, but my only choice was to ride back the way I came, which was now uphill, wet, and covered with wet logs. It could have gone all kinds of wrong with the stunts I was pulling to get out of there. I was lucky to get out at all. Funny thing is, I turned around on another trail earlier that day because of a downed tree, which was a pretty minor obstacle in comparison, but it never even occurred to me to turn around on this trail. I still have no idea why I kept going. .
