The World's Tallest Thermometer

The biggest thermometer on earth is located in Baker, California, United States, near Las Vegas, Nevada. It is a very hot place in summer. Its maintenance rises up to 40 thousand dollars each year. You may view the temperature readings from three different angels.

Technically, it isn't a thermometer at all. It is an electric sign built in 1991 by the Young Electric Sign Co. of Salt Lake City. It weighs 76,812 pounds, is held together by 125 cubic yards of concrete, and stands 134 feet tall, a symbolic measurement in tribute to the 134 degrees recorded in nearby Death Valley in 1913 - the highest temperature ever recorded in North America. Ostensibly, 134 is both the World's Tallest Thermometer's maximum height and temperature.

You may visit this centerpiece in the middle of the Mojave Desert. If you've ever traveled the I-15 freeway in Southern California you have seen it and might want to step out of your car for a minute and take pictures for free!
