Travels north, east, south, and west of our Oceanside home base.

Baker, Nevada has an official population of 32 people. If you aren’t visiting Great Basin National Park then you probably aren’t visiting Baker, especially in the off season (now). We are here for the national park. It is a sign that we have driven past so many times while taking a trip to Idaho, Utah or Montana and have always wondered about. It is remote, about two hours north of Cedar City, Utah with nothing but gorgeous skies and amazing landscape along the way. Even though Great Basin National Park isn’t large, there are two visitor centers, one inside the park and one outside. Our first stop in Baker is an explore of the Great Basin Visitor Center, outside the national park. It is the largest of the two and a good choice since, even though the website lists that it is open every day from 8:00-5:00, a paper sign on the door says it is open Wednesday-Saturday from 8:00-4:00. We barely made it on time. It was worth the stop; very informative.

    Baker was usually only a stop on the way to Vegas for us never really explored it. This looks like a cool visitor center.
