I'm suffering from post-playa blues... Black Rock Desert has one of the least friendly environments imaginable.
Heat, wind, dust, rain, mud... all make you very conscious that you are living on the mercy of the land.
... you must adjust your ways appropriately to survive unscathed.
Um... but never mind that. Here are some of the pictures I took of the burn!

The Burning Man, arms raised... Do you think he knows what's coming?!?
The Man is ignited... fireworks and sparks stream from his body.
Yes... it's the man.
The Man, fireworks released, goes into a nice slow burn... but a mighty machine in the foreground belches forth enormous mushroom clouds
of fire, warming the entire audience. A chaos flag flies in the center of the crowd.
A batch of fireworks is triggered several minutes into the burn.
Obviously, I have much more to say about the entire trip... expect more soon!
