First set the mood: https://open.spotify.com/track/5mphSkiNyoyOJTDe3PIpOv Lake McDonald is a beautiful lake and is definitely worth a drive along. What struck me most was how clear and turquoise the water was and the visibility of large groups of fish. I stayed in Apgar Village and enjoyed the scenery around Lake McDonald both morning and evening. Drove to the opposite end of the lake to Lake McDonald Lodge twice. Would recommend spending time here and enjoying the Big Sky breakfast buffet at the lodge.
