Standing sentinel on the California Coast is the stunning and mysterious Santa Lucia Mountain Range. But among this wild beauty, there have been reports of phantoms. Dark looming “watchers”, have allegedly been seen since the arrival of the Spanish in the 1700s, and perhaps going back millennia earlier with the native Chumash people.
Reported by travelers and locals alike, the accounts remain consistent. Adorned in dark cloaks and wide-brim hats, these black giants of the fog stand motionless, and with featureless faces, surveying the crags and cliffs with a haunting, uninterrupted gaze.
Should you approach one of these ever-vigilant sentinels, they will simply vanish into the mist that shrouds the secrets of this ancient land. What are they, and what is their clandestine purpose?!
