The Great Lakes are a series of interconnected freshwater lakes primarily in the upper mid-east region of North America, on the Canada–United States border, which connect to the Atlantic Ocean through the Saint Lawrence River. The Great Lakes have a humid continental climate, and winter becomes severe without which halts over-the-water transportation.

The local scenery on the ground is as follows.
