Burning Man is a week-long annual event that began on San Francisco's Baker Beach and migrated to the Black Rock Desert in Northern Nevada. It takes its name from the ritual burning of a large wooden effigy, which is set alight on Saturday evening. Orange peel is Black Rock City bound for the thirteenth time to stilt, make Orangami and maybe even deliver singing telegrams for the post office.
