Timelapse travel videos have become the slide carousels and instamatics of contemporary globe-trotting, as common place as trips themselves thanks to easy-to-use video editing software and ubiquitous video sharing sites.

But occasionally, epic time-lapse footage surfaces, whether it's of an astonishing landscape, a cross-country road trip or a fascinating city.

File this entry, a nearly 20-minute-long tour de force of this year's Burning Man, under category three. Black Rock City, the festival's summer home in the Nevada desert, annually plays host to tens of thousands of participants, more than 53,000 at this year's event.
