Contest #412: Black Rock Desert, Nevada, Home of Burning Man

The Burning Man festival is held each year from the last Monday in August until the first Monday in September. Started in 1986 in San Francisco, it moved to Black Rock Desert in 1990.

The culmination of the festival is the “burn”, held on Saturday night, of a large statue of a man (hence the name of the festival) made out of flammable materials.
