Elusive Morrison Caves

Ever heard of the Morrison caves in Malibu? Supposedly, this hard to find, super cool cave is where Jim Morrison used to come for inspiration. I don't know if that's true or not, but what I do know is that it is a rare gem of a place that is hip, hidden, and definitely inspirational. I've been several times and again recently. Every time, it's an adventure just finding the place!

As with most things in life, it's easiest to do for the first time with a guide who has been there before. For the sake of keeping this place hidden and elusive, I'll only give hints on how to find it. Drive up the coast on the PCH, past Santa Monica and deep into the heart of magnificent Malibu. Turn right on a small street, I think it's called Corral Canyon or something like that. There is a gas station on the right side that helps me know where to turn. Follow the winding road through the mountains, until the road ends. From there, set out on foot into the hills of Malibu. There are many caves in this area, so explore, explore, explore! When you find the birthing canal (you'll know it when you see it) you've hit the jackpot. Take the plunge and enter this tight space, trust me it will be worth it. I love coming here to take pictures, here's my favorite shot of the day.
