St. Lawrence lowlands - Great Lakes

The Great things about the St. Lawrence lowlands


During the summer in the St. Lawrence lowland in this region you can do a lot of things like go visit Niagara falls. In this one particular place you can see the falls up close but not as close where you could get crushed by the falling water and go behind the falls safely.You can do everything you can imagine, but now you can do more like zip-line so close to the falls that you can touch the water coming coming down. Also when your going down you can see the different kinds of rock and see the view from a birds eye view.  You would also be able to cross the border in a funner way. Even when your done going back a forth there are places you can stay over night, eat and even have more fun!


In this region the climate has dry and kinda of warm summers and cold snowy warm winters, which means this region has a Continental climate. That means in the summer it will be dry enough to do outdoor activates during the summer. June July and August are the warmest time's average of 15 degrees Celeste, but because of the precipitation and rain in those months (about 50%) there would be limited time to be outdoors so you should go during the start of the summer so there's less precipitation. In the winter there will be lots of snow but its one of the warmest regions in Canada that has the lowest temperature in the region. The average temperature would reach to around  -2 to -6 so you could still visit the falls and maybe still zip-line if there's no snow but very unlikely there will be no snow or zip-lining.

Physical Features

Like the interior plates the St. Lawrence lowlands have bedrock formed of sedimentary rock from the Paleozoic era. You can find these Paleozoic bedrock to sedimentary in several areas in this region. The best known places you could find bedrock would be Niagara escarpment and extends from Niagara falls to Manitoulin and this happened because of different forms of erosion's. The big question that people have been asking is what was caused to make the falls? What caused the falls to be like this? How did it happen? Well its called different erosion. Different erosion is when the soft rock gets pushed away by water until it finds hard rock. In this case the the water from the falls we see today was flowing flat but because there was soft sedimentary rock the water pushed the soft rock down the valley and kipped going until the water hit hard rock and created that different leveled land and that's what would caused the falls to form.
