Cool stop off in Baker, worth stopping and calling into their shop. Also 2 min walk is the alien beef jerky which is worth a stop

With the hot hot weather in nearby Death Valley, I always find it fun to check how hot the weather is in Baker at the world's tallest thermometer. Its an easy stop from the I-15 to make.

We loved our stop in Baker and snapped a few photos of the thermometer. Kids enjoyed it. Staff in the shop were lovely, knowledgeable and friendly, lots of souvenirs to pick up if that takes your interest. About 116 when we came through - melting!
