News and Views - New Stamp Features Columbia River Gorge

Columbia Gorge View Stamp Comes at a Premium 

Columbia River Gorge

 

The sweeping panoramic views along the Columbia River Gorge are priceless, so it seems appropriate that the new Gorge stamp comes at a premium.  At $22.95 (in panes of ten), you’re not likely to send or receive a simple letter using that postage.  Designed for Priority Mail Express, the premier stamp will be used for guaranteed overnight delivery between major metro areas.

 

The graphic illustration represents a view of the Gorge from the Oregon side, looking East towards Washington. Forests and canyons along the river surround the historic Vista House atop Crown Point. Beacon Rock State Park in Stevenson, WA peeks (peaks?) up just behind it.  Even at that price, it's a nice recognition of the area's majestic beauty.

Spectacular Views Abound in the Pacific Northwest

The Pacific Northwest territory has been featured before on special release stamps, but not all have scenic views.  One of the most picturesque is the 1935 National Parks commemorative release celebrating Mt Rainier.  At the original price of 3¢, available now from collectors for $8.50, it represents an affordable alternative.
