Yellowstone National Park, USA

Yellowstone is a big place. Everyone thinks of the geysers, but there's a lot of backcountry. Much of it was burnt in the big fires of 1988, and in the dry climate the blackened trunks still stand like ranks of soldiers.

Lisa and Shaun and I were hiking there, when Lisa quite deliberately pushed me against a sooty stump.

It's my principle that, in circumstances like these, a girl should always get more than she bargained for.

As you see, she did.
