I read this and truly felt sad. How many millions have taken that drive along I-15 and pulled off in Baker for a brief pit stop including coffee? I will never forget how it lit up everything at night. Wonder if some generous soul will come along and restore it? It sure won't be the same if it isn't there any more.
