Chile is a second option but California lacks fjords and overall isn't all that similar to Southern Chile.

Along with Mexican Baja California and adjacent areas, they make up a continuum of close lands, but it seems to me that most of the California biome lies on US soil if you know what I mean.

Those are my bets.

Totally Spain. Last time I was in California I realized that it looked exactly like Spain.
