What is so special about this place, you ask? Well, it is the Southern Gateway to Death Valley and boasts the worlds tallest thermometer. The thermometer is 138 feet tall. That height was chosen, because the hottest temperature ever recorded in this region was 138° F. Yes, it was quite warm that day. The thermometer is located on the grounds of the Bun Boy restaurant. They have fresh strawberry short cake year round here. They must have strawberry hunters searching the world over to find when they are in season.  Baker is actually a very good launching point to go to other pares of the eastern Mojave Desert. There is gas, lodging, food and most of the modern conveniences that you will probably need.
