Burning Man 2008

Burning Man is a must-see, must-experience event.
Set in Nevada's Black Rock Desert, the two decade-old annual DIY festival brands itself as a radical experiment in community, self expression and reliance. As the website says, "Trying to explain what Burning Man is to someone who has never been to the event is a bit like trying to explain what a particular color looks like to someone who is blind." A combination of hippie, new age, experimental art and rave, it is one of those unique California/Wild West experiences, with the desert as lead character.
