|My Alphabe Thursday theme—Places I've Been|
We were heading back home from Las Vegas, which was our first visit there together. Talk about surrealism. Las Vegas, that is. But, that's for another day.
Baker is in the Mojave Desert. It's known for having the tallest thermometer in the world—134 feet high. The electric sign was built in the early 1990s to memorialize when Death Valley recorded 134 degrees Fahrenheit on July 10, 1913.
You've heard the saying, "It's so hot you could fry an egg on a sidewalk." Standing next to the thermometer is a sculpture of a pan of fried eggs. How appropriate.
Alphabe Thursday is hosted by the delightful and thoughtful Jenny Matlock. This week is the letter B. Click here to check out what other participants are writing about.
