Yosemite Featured In New Postage Stamp

The U.S. Postal Service released a new Yosemite National Park international rate stamp at the end of February, and it's a beauty!

Featuring a stunning view of "Gates of the Valley" by famed outdoor photographer Galen Rowell, the stamp is part of the new "Scenic American Landscape" series. For collectors and Yosemite lovers, the Yosemite Association has developed a special First Day of Sale Cachet that carries the special cancellation developed for the stamp along with the normal Yosemite National Park postal cancellation. The ivory envelope is printed with a beautiful line drawing of El Capitan by Jane Gyer, along with a description of the image and its significance.

The cachet is now available for only $5, and Y.A. members receive a 15% discount and can purchase this collectible for only $4.25.

Thanks for reading.
