Baker Overview

Baker is a very small community of about 1,000 population along interstate 15 between Los Angeles and Las Vegas. It sits near the southern end of Death Valley in the Mohave Desert.
The major attraction here is the 134 foot tall thermometer which commemorates the hottest temperature ever recorded in the United States, 134 degrees F, 56.7 C., measured in Death Valley in 1913.

It is also one of the few locations to have a Bob's Big Boy still! If stopping for gasoline in Baker, the prices are cheaper at the west end than at the east end, where most travelers first come to.
