While much of the state is swathed in deep smoke from massive wildfires, the Mammoth Lakes area has remained mostly smoke-free for much of the summer. However, looking toward Bishop and Crowley Lake as you can see at the halfway point of this video, the story is quite different - thick smoke covers Long Valley and the Owens Valley. The video was taken from the top of Minaret Vista just before the Inyo National Forest closed earlier this week.
