So who needs an African Safari? (grin)
A journey to Burning Man is a voyage into one of the world’s most creative environments. A kaleidoscope of art, costumes, theme camps, and live performances constantly demand your attention. Mutant vehicles are another form of marvelous creativity. In my last blog I introduced you El Pulpo Mecanico. Here are some other favorites of mine from Burning Man 2104.

I would say that this Burner is quite proud of her Rhino.

…its mutant vehicle.
Speaking of eyes, I caught this man-sized one on a mutant vehicle the night they burned the Man.
Peggy found this dragon out on the Playa while the owners were away. Good thing they didn’t leave the keys. Giddy-up! (Photo by Tom Lovering.)

This is a rather attractive fellow with gossamer wings.
Imagine for a moment you didn’t know what was happening and you saw this creature of the deep emerge out of a dust storm.
A steampunk horse shows off his inner workings. The carriage is also quite unique.

Large mutant vehicles such as this bull can accommodate a number of people.
The same bull at night provides a perspective on how dramatically different mutant vehicles can look when the sun goes down.
This Cheshire Cat rolled by our campsite.
Lady Sassafras built by the Crown Collective of New Orleans is made from debris left over by Hurricane Katrina.
Mutant vehicles come in all sizes as this ATV demonstrates. Every square inch of available space is covered.
Close up of the decorations. I liked the dog.
This three mast sail boat makes a good conclusion for this blog on the mutant vehicles at Burning Man 2014. Next blog: A huge sculpture known as Embrace.
