From the Guidebook:
Nitt Witt Ridge, one of California's
remarkable Twentieth Century Folk Art Environments, is
the creation of Arthur Harold Beal (der Tinkerpaw or Capt.
Nitt Witt), a Cambria Pines pioneer, who sculpted the
land using hand tools and indigenous materials, remarkable
inventiveness, and self-taught skills. A blend of native
materials and contemporary elements, impressive in its
sheer mass and meticulous placement, it is a revealing
memorial to Art's unique cosmic humor and zest for life.
