The view got better...

...as our drive took us to the southern edge of Lake McDonald...



And got better still when we saw the north end of the lake...



On the shore is the Lake McDonald Lodge, where we stopped for lunch. It's a neat old rustic place (with, I believe, thoroughly modern room prices)...



The Lodge offers bus tours through the park, and has since the 1920s. Its fleet of White buses (from 1936) finally wore out mechanically, so they were rebuilt with modern truck chassis underneath. They still look extremely cool, though...



And we had lunch on the Lodge's beach. The food tasted wonderful. Or maybe it was just the fresh air...



Not through yet....

The top pic is absolutely beautiful! It makes me wish for a home at the edge of that lake so I could have that view everyday.
