New records at Freedom Mile

July 10, 2014

People clad in red, white, and blue attire lined Old Mammoth Road last week in anticipation of the annual Independence Day Parade, but first they watched nearly 450 runners competing for top honors in the Ninth Annual Footloose Freedom Mile.

“We weren’t just competing for the win—we were competing for pie,” said race winner Gabe Proctor, 24. “When I heard Deena was making pies for the winners, I knew I had to race.”

Off The Trail - Shifting Ground

June 5, 2014

The mountains are down on the ground, washed from their customary serene height by a rampaging enemy, water.

Fifteen feet above the rutted road, mud as thick as a two-story building looms above the big red truck, dwarfing it.

Embedded in the thick, grey mud, whole trees, big trees-—junipers and Jeffrey and white pine and pinyon—tangle and twist in their death throes; Pompeii in the Sierra.

What’s open, what isn’t: latest on on local trails, roads, campgrounds

The drought winter has allowed more access to Mammoth-area trails, roads and campgrounds than is normal for late May and June, but many high country trails are still covered in snow if they are above 10,000 elevation and/or if they are on north-facing, shaded slopes.

Several campgrounds are also still closed, due to issues with infrastructure or access.

According to the Inyo National Forest, the following is a list of the status of most of the area roads, campgrounds and trails, with a new update expected on Friday, May 30. That update will be posted at mammothtimes..com.

A toxic and carcinogenic heavy metal, mercury, has been detected near the Mill City Stamp Mill area in Old Mammoth at levels high enough to trigger a clean up effort but the mercury is not likely to pose a risk to Mammoth’s drinking water supply—nor to people accessing the Mill City area for recreational purposes, scientists said Tuesday.
