Which way to Black Rock City?


Every year at the end of August and beginning of September; some 50,000 plus people congregate in the Black Rock Desert some 10 miles outside of the small town of Gerlach Nevada, to participate in one of the most unique events held in the entire world, known as the Burning Man. Explaining what it is exactly isn’t an easy task even for someone that has attended the event, every year at the same time and same place, a town called Black Rock city sprouts up in the middle of the northern Nevada desert and plays host to an eclectic and sometimes eccentric blend of personalities from all over the world. Burning man is often described as an annual experiment in art, self-expression and community where the normal constraints of community are almost nonexistent. Its anything goes, so long as it doesn’t threaten the safety, health and well-being of the community. Its fun, its artsy, its… Burning man.

  1. It beats the hell out of what the redneck KKK fuckers do with a huge cross at Stone Mountain in Georgia.

    I don't think hate is involved at Burning Man.
