Default Tree branch to the face

Was bombing the untracked pow along the edge of the Upper Tattletale trail at Bolton Valley yesterday, had been ducking branches when BANG I took one to the face, split my lip,split the gum for my left canine , scratched my face up pretty well.
Ended up spitting out blood and blotting it off my face until the bleeding stopped.
Went back to the lodge and cleaned myself up , did another 8 or nine runs after that .
There had to be a foot and a half of powder, or more depending on where I went.
I look like hell today , and had some explaining to do at work due to the abrasions, scabs and bruising .
I told then it was worth it and that I didn't feel any pain.
Be careful out there !
It could have been worse, as my helmet and goggles have a few more marks on them now.
