A City that Can Only be Found Once a Year [38 Pics]

Nov 11 2012

Every year, on the last Monday of August a truly unbelievable event takes place in the middle of Black Rock Desert. It's believed that once one visits this magical place, they are forever changed. Welcome to Burning Man.

In 2012, Burning Man was home to over 50,000 people, each one experessing themselves in most creative ways imaginable. I'll let the photos do the talking.
