A Rocky Mountain High in Stamps!

August 27th, 2007

Ten of the most beautiful wildlife and scenic U.S. postage stamps to be issued this year will be unveiled in their home setting of Rocky Mountain National Park Aug. 28. The U.S. Postal Service will bring awareness to the importance of our natural ecosystems with the issuance of the new 41-cent Nature of America: Alpine Tundrastamps.

Depicted on the Alpine Tundra stamps are 24 animal and plant species, all of which could be encountered on Rocky Mountain's alpine tundra. The stamp is a rendering by artist Dawson, showing the diversity of the mountain's plant and animal fauna in an almost imaginary scene in his beautiful acrylic painting.
