As far as the eye can see [1]

Talk about wide open spaces! The Baie-James territory, covering 350,000 km2 (135,100 sq. mi.), is sprinkled with countless lakes and rivers. The Assinica and Lacs-Albanel-Mistassini-et-Waconichi wildlife reserves form Québec’s largest reserve, and Lac Mistassini is a veritable landlocked sea, with a surface area of 4,275 km2 (1,650 sq. mi.). From the 49th to the 52nd parallel, you’re surrounded by the boreal forest and its characteristic black spruce trees. The taiga gradually takes over from the 52nd to the 55th parallel, with the trees becoming sparser and shorter.
