Trip to Baker California and surrounding area, home of the world's largest thermometer. Baker is a sort of glorified pit stop that survive on the money of travelers passing by. The thermometer's height of 134 feet is symbolic of the highest recorded temperature in the United States history: 134 degrees measured in Death Valley on July 10, 1913. The thermometer was built in 1991 at a cost of around $700,000.
