Passing Through Baker, CA

If you've driven to Las Vegas from Southern California, then you've been to Baker. And if you haven't, well Baker is a spot you pass on the way to LV, or stop by for bathroom break -- or if you're me, a sandwich at Arby's. I've stopped there numerous times as I frequent Vegas to see family, and sometimes I'll cruise the single strip and stop places and shoot some photos. There's a couple of abandoned motels and a pretty good variety of fast food including the aforementioned Arby's, The Mad Greek, and more. There's also some attractions like the alien jerky place, the world's tallest thermometer, and a cool looking local post office. It's a cool place to stop for photos as there's a fair amount of cool scenes all confined within the lone main strip.
