Traveling on the California coast near the Santa Lucia Mountains? You may experience the feeling of being watched. According to local legend, “Dark Watchers” haunt the ridges and peaks of the mountains: giant figures in wide-brimmed hats with walking sticks, keeping a mysterious eye or two on travelers as they pass by. Get too close and they’ll disappear!
