Burning Man 2018 - Nighttime

I decided to split up our Burningman post into daytime and nighttime for a good reason. It's incredible how the whole atmosphere changes once it gets dark. Colorful lights are getting turned on everywhere, you can start hearing music from each corner. There is a certain excitement in the air where everyone is curious what the night will bring. A big part for us was exploring the artwork that is scattered all over the playa. We would start heading off with our bikes in one direction and then see where we end up..

The Art Cars

Another crazy attraction on the plays are the art cars driving around. If you want you can hop on one and just see where it takes you. Just don't have any expectations, you might end up in the middle of the playa, so you just have to roll with it.
