Photo: Our first destination: Sonoma Valley, after a good night's rest in Fairfield
Photo: California's second-most famous winery valley, we chose it over Napa for reasons that will soon be apparent.
Photo: The drive to Sonoma was very scenic, with lots of Vineyards
Photo: 100 degrees! We anticipated chilly weather in San Francisco and Lake Tahoe, and packed accordingly. Oops!

Photo: Dulce wanted a place where we could sample cheeses, like in Amana Colonies, Iowa

Photo: His favorite was the Sonoma Jack
Photo: We spent quite a while here, obviously

Photo: We picked up some of their favorite flavor. Were pleased to see Mililani's Safeway carried Sonoma Jack, too!
Photo: We bought sandwiches, but I think they filled themselves up here.
Photo: We hankered for a hunk o' cheese (okay, who caught the reference?)
