Travel - Souvenirs Dolomite Roacks

We are just back from a 16-day trip to the Italian Lakes and the Dolomite Mountains.  Most of the shops that we came across either offered the usual kitchy souvenir junk, or extremely high-end clothing or home furnishings.  My favorite souvenirs, therefore, are the photographs I take, locally-produced foods, and rocks I find along the way.  Here are my dolomite representatives showing the three colors we primarily saw:  white, green and pink.  I especially like the biggest one with sparkly areas where it has broken to show the interior.  I found that one on a particularly difficult hike down a mountain where the path was all boulders.  I will never forget conquering that section!
