    This was so nice to find in Foursquare! We had the very nice owner lady to tell us stories like that it is her father who originally built it! And now it's been renovated and WORKING! :)

    Always a great tourist spot to pop in and see. Sometimes it works & sometimes not, but it's fun to check out when en route to Vegas.

    Every time our family drives to Vegas we always take bets on what the temperature will be. The problem is that it is always broken!

    IT'S FIXED! Original owners have it back and it is totally refurbished complete with a souvenir shop Temp 134 whose proceeds keep the thermometer lit!

    The store next to it had "Premium" Beef Jerky! If this is your thing, it's worth the 5 to 10 minutes. If not, move on.

    Oh this place is super cool, specially when its around 112 degrees & you stand next to it to take a pic. You will provably be fried if she/he doesn't hurry taking the pic.

    Spoke with the manager of Big Boy (current owner of the property) and he said "It would cost way too much to fix it." Maybe the Chamber of Commerce and/or some historic preservation group can help?

    Since I was little I have been visiting the thermometer. It's sad to know that it is no longer running, but the memories will last

    Pretty neat attraction. Make sure to use this as a photo op and enjoy the 100+ degree weather in the summer!!

    The thermometer is 134' high for the highest temp recorded in nearby Death Valley, 134 degrees!

    Thermometer is currently broken - displays random numbers. Maintenance apparently was costing around $40,000 per year - even when the thermometer was in better condition.

    Hasn't worked for a while and it's up for sale. Apparently, the town of Baker has mixed feelings about this tourist attraction, but the LA-Vegas drive wouldn't be the same without it.

    its sad that the Thermometer doesnt light up anymore. Its a shame that the when the owner of it passed away they turned it off & havent re-lit it. Miss seeing the temp & taking pics
