Carthedral

Barely a month after the end of Burning Man 2005, thousands of "burners" hit the streets of San Francisco on Sunday for "Decompression," a day of art, dancing, costumes and general celebration of the spirit and energy that dominate Nevada's Black Rock Desert late each summer. Here, burners celebrate the arrival at Decompression of Rebecca Caldwell's "Carthedral," a mainstay at Burning Man.
