If you don’t want to stay indoors this weekend and are brave enough to face the mud, be careful of the mud! Broken bones and twisted ankles are the most common injuries, but there’s also a possibility of a bruised sternum-otherwise known as the breast bone if you fall and land on your back. Another big risk at this time of year in the forests: falling branches.
