Life Was Beautiful

This annual gathering around the Third Straw intake in the dry basin of Lake Mead will feature music (an ancient Killers CD on portable speakers), storytelling (old-timers reminiscing about how Vegas was better when the Water District ran things) and Burning Man — some guy spontaneously combusting from the heat.
