Burning Man 2002 Image Gallery - Image 03

It took us about 20 hours to get to Burning Man! We arrived at the site around 10 pm on Monday night. According to Mapquest, the 750 miles (1200 km) from San Diego to Black Rock City should take "only" about 13 hours, but we made several stops to do some last minute shopping.
Seeing Black Rock City for the first time is quite breathtaking. After we arrived, it took us another 2 hours or so to actually get through the entrance and finally mark our claim.
Before we started setting up our dome tent, we had a nice breakfast in the shade (as long as there was still shade). I'm not quite finished with my first coffee yet, so I still look a little bit sleepy in the picture.
