235--Nevada: Burning Man, Wild Photos of the Burn 2004

cherie writes: Burning Man is like black licorice. You either love it or you hate it.

To date, I have never met anyone who hated Burning Man. Perhaps it is n art festival that brings out the best in all of us--tolerance, acceptance, forgiveness...and most of all--crazy costumes, creative art, incredible pyrotectics, mutant vehicles and wild all-night parties.

I welcome you into the world of Black Rock City. Citizens are only there a week, but they return with a lifetime of memories.
