the concept of burning man has always fascinated me--the thought of some 48,000+ people that journey out to the black rock desert for one week out of the year to be part of an experimental community is such a unique concept. (don't know what it is? what is burning man is a good little short explanation.)
i love that the whole experience turns into one big party--there are lots and LOTS of free spirits, hippies, artists, & musicians doing their "thing" in the middle of the nevada desert.
i think it would be so cool to go out for a few days and immerse yourself in this culture. but the only problem i see is that i would have to a: camp, and b: sleep in a tent, and c: use a port-a-potty. (TOTAL deal-breaker.)
i'm a huge fan of nick adams, and i absolutely loved the photos he took at the event:
