You will pass Baker when you drive from California to Las Vegas. And you could pass it but we like to stop there to get refreshed, watch the largest thermometer in the area and then go back on the road again.

Everytime we traveled from LA to Las Vegas and we stopped got out of the airconditioned car we feel the heat for real... It's hot but bearable because it's a dry heat...

    It's fascinating to see an entirely different perspective of this small town. I know this palce only as the last bathroom stop in California....but seeing it through your eyes gives me a new appreciation for all that I've missed.

    Baker must need a tall thermometer because of the high temperatures. Nice page about this desert community.
