Last night's sunset at Baker, California, home of the world's tallest thermometer, was a pleasant pinkish glow
It was still 92 degrees when I had supper at Los Dos Toritos, one of the only non-chain restaurants in this freeway-stop town with far more gas stations per capita than most towns. Great home-style meal as always.
