Family Trip to Burning Man travel blog

Another dusty day for our intrepid adventurers!

And out of the dust, appeared a tractor hauling a little house...

We stopped to have one last look at the Temple before it...

Hi Mom and Dad!

Hey! Where'd the Man go??

Darin stands where the Man used to be.

The moon rose just before the burn.

Me in my Ranger khaki, walking to the Temple with Derek, Marshall,...

The one decent picture we got of the Temple burning.

My dusty, dusty braids

This morning was my turn to cook, so I pulled out the vacuum-sealed crepes and heated them up. We had sweet crepes with lemon and powdered sugar, and savory ones with a chicken and mushroom filling. Dee-lish. Then we got on our bikes and did one last tour before we started packing.

By this point we were soooo ready to wash off the dust. But we did stay for the Temple burn and it was beautiful. After the burn ended, we jumped into our dusty vans and made for the gate. It took us maybe an hour to get out (not bad, last year Deanna and Marshall were stuck in line for 4 hours), and we made it back to our hotel in one piece.

The next morning was spent washing and detailing our vans, and I must have eaten an entire pan of corned beef hash from the breakfast buffet. YUM! Then we all hugged each other goodbye and flew home! What an amazing trip, and such nice company to do it with. Let's do it again some time....
