New Postage Stamp Putting Kenai Fjords National Park On The Map, Er, The Envelope


A new stamp coming Monday features a glacier in Kenai Fjords National Park.

Come Monday, you can send Kenai Fjords National Park around the country. At least figuratively, thanks to a new stamp from the U.S. Postal Service.

On Monday the Postal Service releases its Earthscapes stamp series featuring a new perspective on one of Kenai Fjords' most photographed locations, Bear Glacier.

Bear Glacier is one of nearly 40 glaciers that flow from the vast Harding Icefield located near Seward, Alaska-the largest in North America and a 300-square-mile vestige of the last Ice Age.

The Bear Glacier "Glacier and Icebergs" stamp is one of 15 stamps in the Earthscapes series. The three rows of stamps present stunning examples of natural, agricultural, and urban landscapes.These photographs, taken from high above the planet's surface, allow us to see the world in a new way.
