About this book

Our most memorable outdoor moments are those totally surprising, sometimes bizarre instances that catch us unawares and make us laugh out loud. Sometimes these hilarious, whimsical moments are fortuitously captured on film. The editors of Outside magazine proudly present images gleaned from 300 issues of their back-page "Parting Shots" photograph feature. It is a celebration of the funny and singular coincidences of an outdoor life – the comic circumstances of relatively tame humans spending more and more time closer and closer to large, wild animals. These images are a rare chance to look at the wide world outside and laugh at both ourselves and that infinitely wondrous, entertaining three-ring circus we call the universe.
