Album: 08-23 Burning Man

     Album:2017:08-23 Burning Man

A lovely year. An easy build which finished early, then we were checking out the early playa and found this tree that needed help. So we helped. All night. And then the next day. And the next few days after that, helping build and debug network/electrical problems. Because it was the Tree of Tenere, and it was one of the most beautiful pieces of art I've seen.
