Turkey, The Birds and Wine Country

Linda and I took a quick trip to The Russian River Valley and coastal regions of California to see family (brother Roger and sister in-law Lynette liver in Sonoma County) for Thanksgiving.  My brother Dave and sister in-law Brenda flew in from Kansas City to join the festivities.  The 776 mile trip each way from Sun Valley ID to Cloverdale CA included crossing over the Donner Summit (elevation 7,240) on I-80.  The weather on the summit can be brutal – on average 400+ inches of annual snow fall.  A major snow storm (12″+) was hitting the summit during each of our crossings.
