Hundreds of RVs were turned away at the gate to Burning Man on Monday, after rains turned the Black Rock Desert playa into a soupy mess. Some “Burners” parked overnight at a Reno Walmart, while others took refuge in Gerlach, Nevada, or at Pyramid Lake, where Janelle Coburn of Portland, Orgeon, parked her bright yellow VW van and enjoyed the view.
