Description
Baker California, in the Mojave Desert, is the home of this really big instrument. Standing tall at 134 feet, its height commemorates the hottest temperature ever recorded in the United States, 134 °F (56.7 °C), measured in nearby Death Valley in 1913. Summer temperatures in Baker routinely exceed 110 °F (43.3 °C); 2007 saw a record of 125 °F (51.7 °C). (THANKS to Wikipedia!) .. #baker #ca #california #desert #mojave #thermometer
