a really big river downhill from my house, then mostly forested lands with some farms in the valleys and flatlands, then arboreal forest until there is no more forest, then tundra, I guess (north of the tree line). I never got that far north. I have been all over the arboreal forest part though, to a lot of the mining and mill towns that are found here and there. Aren't a heck of a lot of roads beyond those mill and mining towns. South will pass me through similar mixed forest and farmland, eventually coming to the Atlantic coast and the Atlantic Ocean, all the way down to South America. I never looked to see what was that far south.
There are various mountains and lakes, and smaller rivers or the occasional big river, that exist in the forested regions, of course. You know, North America on the east side of the great lakes. Mostly forest.
