In many parts the Eucalyptigrew to a great size and composed a noble forest. Finding the coast-road devoid of interest of any kind, we turnedinland towards the mining district and valley of Illapel. This channel, which was discovered byCaptain Fitz Roy during the last voyage, is a most remarkablefeature in the geography of this, or indeed of any other country:it may be compared to the valley of Loch Ness in Scotland, with itschain of lakes and friths. These were petrified trees,eleven being silicified, and from thirty to forty converted intocoarsely-crystallised white calcareous spar. Iheard also of an old lady who, at a dinner at Coquimbo, remarkedhow wonderfully strange it was that she should have lived to dinein the same room with an Englishman; for she remembered as a girl,that twice, at the mere cry of "Los Ingleses," every soul, carryingwhat valuables they could, had taken to the mountains.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
