You are looking at the lonely shell of the former Arne's Royal Hawaiian Hotel, in the desolate desert pull-over town of Baker, California.
Baker is best known as the tiny rest stop with the world's largest thermometer, where high temps can actually top 110 degrees plus in the summer. It's 90 minutes from Las Vegas, and also considered "the gateway to Death Valley National Park."
But sadly, Baker has seen better days. Face it, most motels get torn down. In Baker, why bother?"
And that's good enough for us to get out of the car and document it, right?
