These pictures were taken while on our way to Lake McDonald Lodge.
Click to enlarge Look at Karen's feet.  They have ice on them.  The temperature of the waters in these lakes are in the 40s. 

The water here is absolutely crystal clear.

Only problem is that this lake is 475 feet deep.  The trout tend to hang out at about 100 feet.
