A woman gets into the spirit of Burning Man after the big burn of the man statue on the playa. Rising from the desert in one of the flattest, most remote places on earth is an 80-foot temple topped by the stylized figure of a man. It wasn't here last week and now it's pile of ashes where it was ritually burned to the ground. In one of the most bizarre rites of the Silicon Age, nearly 30,000 people are camped in the middle of the Nevada desert 90 miles north of Reno to build and then destroy a temporary city built around a religious icon.
