Here I am in front of the GATEWAY TO DEATH VALLEY in Baker California.

Will Herron, a businessman, dreamed of a huge thermometer for 25 years before he made it a reality in California’s high desert. The World’s Largest Thermometer is 134-ft.-tall, symbolic of the record high temperature in the US, in Death Valley — 134 degrees Fahrenheit in 1913.

It juts up above Bob’s Big Boy coffee shop in Baker, a small town near Nevada, “Gateway to Death Valley.”
