Burning Man

 In late August, I was sent to a very interesting work detail in the Black Rock Desert in NW Nevada.  This is the location of the Burning Man Event, a festival which attracts more than 50,000 visitors to a remote, dusty desert on BLM land.  I spent 10 days protecting the people and the land...not always an easy thing to do in a city the size of the state capital of Nevada!  This was the third time I've gone on this detail.  All in all, it was a great time!  Here are some of my photos...
Sunrise at the "Temple"

This "Sinking Ship" was my favorite piece of art

Early morning and ready for patrol!

The burning of "The Man"

Some wild and frightening fire behavior during the burning of the man!
