Photo POSTcard: Italy’s Majestic Dolomites

One final view of Italy’s majestic Dolomite granite peaks before we move on.  This view is in the Rosengarten/Cantinaccio region. The German name, Rosengarten, derives from a legend about the dwarf king Lauren who supposedly had a rose garden here, but because of a curse, it can only be seen at sunset. These peaks average around 9000 ft. and since they are west facing, beautifully capture the orange glow of sunset.  As with other regions in these mountains, there are ample scenic hiking opportunities in the area.

Thanks for visiting
