Meet California’s legendary monsters in this guided tour, from the sea, where life began, to the Golden State’s scenic lakes, majestic mountains, brooding forests, and rumored “alien tunnels” beneath the streets of Los Angeles. Cower beneath a giant vulture with a wingspan of 25 feet in San Bernadino County. See a 30-foot-long flying/slithering serpent/bird in Riverside County that matched the speed of a train. Tour the lost underground city connecting L.A. to Santa Monica Bay, where lizard people were dropped off by a prehistoric meteor shower. Unknown creatures may appear at any time, to startle, frighten, and in some cases devour unwary humans. While Bigfoot is known to many, California’s other strange creatures —giant birds and reptiles, lizard men, winged apes, man-sized fish, and salamanders—will surprise and fascinate you.
