Not a real thermometer just a tall thin billboard with digital numbers on it. Keep driving

We love stops like this. It only took a few minutes to pull off and snap a pic. It was 117 the day we stopped. A draw back-When you're up close to the thermometer you can't see the temperature lit up. You can however see it when you drive by;)

Part of an overall pretty cool exit! It's a big thermometer, if you're stopping through on a hot summer day definitely worth it to at least get some photos of how dang hot it is. Also stop by the "alien fresh jerkey" store right down the road for some awesome pictures of aliens in a space car, big alien statues, and what looks like will be a "ufo hotel" when they're done building it! Surprised it's not on roadtrippers yet!

A Baker landmark since the early 90s, the thermometer was built as part of the now defunct Bun Boy restaurant and motel complex. It was built 134 feet tall to commemorate the 134 degree temperature recorded just up the road in Death Valley, one of the hottest places on earth. Numerous tourists on their way to Vegas and Los Angeles continue to stop in Baker to take a picture and check the temperature, usually while enjoying a cold milkshake from the Mad Greek or some Dried meat from Alien Fresh Jerky across the street.
