New Stamp Features Columbia River Gorge

A new stamp is to be released, featuring the Columbia River Gorge in all its beauty. It is a Priority Mail Express Stamp, so you can now send your Priority Mail with lovely scenery in tow. 
Priority Mail Express: Columbia River Gorge Stamp
With this new Priority Mail Express stamp, available in panes of 10, the Postal Service celebrates the grandeur of the Columbia River Gorge. Approximately 80 miles long and up to 4,000 ft. deep, the gorge runs along the Columbia River to form part of the border between Oregon and Washington. 
The stamp art captures the beauty of the Columbia River as it winds its way through the steep cliffs of the Cascade Mountain Range. The historic Vista House sitting atop Crown Point and overlooking the river 725 ft. below shimmers in the golden light of the setting sun. Illustrator Dan Cosgrove of Chicago worked under the direction of Phil Jordan of Falls Church, VA, to create the stamp image.
