And no trace was left! Hope she picked up the MOOP…
On a recent, unusually warm fall day the playa beckoned. Reports I have read on the Leave No Trace principle have either been written by Burning Man or the BLM. I wanted to witness the condition of the playa for myself. Amazingly, deep tire grooves in the ancient seabed surface seemed to be the only indicators that 66,000 attendees were here 40 days ago.
As I drove around the ghost town of Black Rock City, a few items were found. Were they sourced from the Burning Man event? There is no way to know, but here are the scarce specimens:
One plastic thingamajig:
One seal of some kind:
Tremendous kudos to the DPW (Department of Public Works) & all the crew members who stay that extra month scouring the Playa for MOOP. You are modern-day heroes, every one of you.
