Worlds Not Realized
This epilogue considers the remnants of the deep historical connections between Chile and California. In California, Place-names, such as Chili Gulch (Calaveras County), Chili Bar (El Dorado County), Chileno Valley (Marin County), Chileno Creek (Merced County), and Chileno Canyon (Los Angeles County) attest to the sites where Chilean pioneers established mining camps or longer-term settlements. Below the streets of San Francisco, the mud-sealed hulls of Chilean ships serve as a subterranean skeleton for the city's shoreline district. In Chile, stretches of iron railroad track, omnipresent clusters of poppies, and ubiquitous stands of Monterey pines serve as tangible reminders of the Californian presence in Chile's landscapes. In 2008, Chilean scientists recorded 1212 alien plant species in California and 593 in central Chile, of which 491 are shared between the two regions.
