(AP) – How hot is it? Tourists in Death Valley should know again soon. A giant thermometer along I-15 is getting a makeover. The family of the late Willis Herron is refurbishing the roadside attraction. He was the original owner of the giant thermometer in the desert between Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
The family tells the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin it should be back in operation this year. It’s 134 feet high. That’s because of the 134-degree temperature record set in Death Valley in 1913.
