If you want to see a Dark Watcher, you have to wait until late afternoon.
As the sun begins its descent behind the waves, gaze at the sharp ridges of the Santa Lucia Range, the mountains that rise from the shores of Monterey and along the central California coast. If you are lucky, you might see figures looming against them. Some say observers are 10 feet tall, made taller or wider by hats or capes. They can turn to you. But they always move away quickly and disappear.
