Lizard’s Mouth Gets Yarnbombed

Popular Hiking Trail Gets Wrapped

The popular hiking and bouldering destination Lizard’s Mouth is getting a splash of color. Beginning Friday, May 23, at 2 p.m., Santa Barbara yarnbomber Stephen Duneier will “wrap” the natural landscape in rainbow hues for his yearly art installation. “This yarnbomb will be my biggest yet,” writes Duneier on his website. It’s taken contributions from hundreds of artists — from 36 countries and all 50 states — to bring the project to fruition, which will only be viewable until June 8. “After 16 days, it will disappear forever, leaving no trace of its existence,” Duneier continues. “All material will be recycled into clothing for those in need and/or used in future installations.” A hedge-fund manager by day, Duneier yarnbombs in an “effort to draw people back to nature.” For more information, visit
