We're sure she got up there safely. The middle of the desert is the last place you want a broken leg.
The Man. The Myth. The Legend.
There he is--the man of the hour himself. And to think, all this craziness happens just so people can set him on fire. I'd be a little miffed if I were him.
Drawing a Crowd in the Desert
These people are probably having a great time with their daytime dance party, but all I see is one giant melanoma.
Catching a Wave
If you thought that baby sea turtle journey from the beach to the ocean was treacherous, just imagine them trying to making it from Nevada.
Let's Hope They Didn't Burn His Parachute Too
Here's a view of the festivities most Burning Man goers don't get to experience.
Don't Forget to Pack a Fire Extinguisher
If you were worried that the desert heat won't be hot enough for you, don't fret--there will be plenty of pyrotechnics.
We're not entirely sure what's going on here, but that guy is almost certainly a wizard or some kind of mythical being.
Thar She Blows
We're not sure who was the captain of this ship, but if you find yourself in the middle of the desert, then you're definitely off course.
If the desert wildlife isn't enough for you, hopefully someone will bring some more along with them.
A Quiet Moment
Not every moment is action-packed at Burning Man, but they are all definitely surreal.
Burning Man in Lights
Here's a glimpse of the 2019 Burning Man before he ultimately went down in flames.
Take Me To Your Leader
Even the aliens have to arrive at Burning Man in style. Although if they were looking for Roswell, their GPS is a little off.
Mad Max Meets Instagram
No need to worry about makeup at Burning Man--the desert dust will gladly cake your face for free.
Just so we don't forget--because this is truly the incredible part of Burning Man--this giant art piece (and many others) was constructed and taken down in the span of this nine-day festival. This is like an engineer's fantasy...or maybe nightmare.
The Mysteries of Egypt
Just another one of many context-free (but still amazing) temporary works of art you can find at Burning Man.
Spiritual Enlightenment in the Desert
For Burning Man 2016, a pagoda-like temple was erected. In the desert. For nine days only.
To get a good grasp on just how massive these figures are, look how the tower over the mountains in the distance.
Hope You Brought Your Library Card
Even in the middle of the desert, there's nothing better than curling up with a good book. Who would have thought you'd go to Burning Man to catch up on your reading?
A Fish Out of Water
These fish in a 2018 Burning Man installation feel right at home in the dry, dusty desert air.
A Missing Piece
Some people try to fill that hole in their heart with drugs or alcohol. Others use Burning Man.
A LBD Won't Cut It at Burning Man
No amount of looking sexy is worth the amount of sand she is going to have to deal with at the end of the day.
Sure It's Pretty But What Is It?
Burning Man is a special place where you can explore the intersections of art, geometry, and psychedelic drug use.
Now Boarding First Class
Burning Man is the last place you want to catch a plane. Because let's be honest--your seat mates are gonna smell like they just spent nine days in the desert.
Doing your own thing is amazing. Quirky signs are not. This doesn't scream, "I'm an individual!" but rather screams, "I'm desperate for attention!"
The Desert Is Not the Place to Dress Like Royalty
I bet those clothes stayed white for all of ten seconds after this picture was taken.
Fit for a Pharaoh
So did ancient aliens help build this pyramid too?
No Building is Normal at Burning Man
We're not saying this thing leads up to some magical wormhole. But we're also not saying it doesn't.
Disco balls meet giant Russian nesting dolls--you'll only find this at Burning Man!
And It All Goes Up in Flames
If you haven't journeyed to the desert to run around nude and set something giant on fire have you really lived?
Until Next Time
Burning Man might be life changing, but it doesn't last forever! You've got to make your way back to the real world at some point.
