As of July 28th, the Aspen Fire, near Huntington Lake, has burned nearly 9,000 acres. While there is no threat to Mammoth Lakes, the smoke over the past few days has been horrible.
This morning the smoke was like a light fog throughout town, but most of it seemed to blow out by the afternoon.
The Villagefest and rib cookoff was not impacted. Crowds filled the Village Plaza most of the day with music and food in abundance.
