After the Storm: Burning Man Exodus Amidst Mud and Cleanup Challenges

By TheNevadaGlobeStaff, September 7, 2023 9:36 am

NEVADA – After the conclusion of Burning Man, participants were faced with a challenging journey as a result of the unexpected storm that hit on Friday.

Despite Burning Man’s principle of “leave no trace,” the muddy aftermath made it difficult for attendees to adhere to this principle.

The storm left vehicles immobilized, forcing many burners to abandon their belongings and trek across miles of treacherous desert terrain to reach civilization.

The muddy conditions also posed challenges in cleaning vehicles, managing waste, and maintaining trailers.

However, the Burning Man community showed resourcefulness and determination in the face of adversity, supporting each other and their neighbors within the camp.

Now, the focus is on restoring the Black Rock Desert to its pristine state within a tight three-week timeframe.

Despite these challenges, many burners remain undeterred and are already looking forward to returning next year.
