As you close in to Lake McDonald, the sights of the mountains start to give way to lake and river sights. There are a few waterfalls along GttS Road in this area, and you will at least have the opportunity to get out of the car and look at them. Upper McDonald Creek Falls is the closest you'll get - there's a boardwalk and overlook to view them from. A little further should be McDonald Falls - although I missed any signs, and may have ended up at an overlook just beyond the actual falls and gotten a sidelong glance at them. From the overlook I was at, I didn't see any way to be able to get closer. Still, a pretty scene.
