It's not easy being a Burner. Sure, it's fun going to the desert and abandoning your responsibilities and inhibitions for a week, but coming back can be rough. So Burners (along with the Burncurious) gathered in the LA State Historical Park to recreate some of the magic of Black Rock City in the shadow of the downtown skyline. This was the 11th year of the Los Angeles Burning Man Decompression Arts and Music Celebration. As with the main event, there was art and music and people in crazy costumes and a little mini-Burning Man, too. There were lots of people making out—probably because they were under the influence of all that creativity (wink).
