Burning Man is ending, however the cleanup from heavy flooding is way from over

RENO, Nev. (AP) — The rain has handed, and the temple has burned. Now, as Burning Man slowly empties, it’s time to scrub up.

Burning Man organizers have three weeks to scrub up the sprawling stretch of public land within the Black Rock Desert of northwestern Nevada, however a summer time storm that left tens of 1000’s stranded in ankle-deep mud might alter that timeframe.

The annual gathering, which launched on a San Francisco seashore in 1986, attracts almost 80,000 artists, musicians and activists for a week-long mixture of wilderness tenting and avant-garde performances. One of many rules of Burning Man is to depart no hint — an expectation that each one attendees will pack out every thing they dropped at Black Rock Metropolis and clear out their camps earlier than leaving.
