Grand Teton

Visitors watch the morning sun illuminate the Grand Tetons on Aug. 28, 2016, from within the Great Room at the Jackson Lake Lodge, in Grand Teton National Park, north of Jackson Hole.

Wyoming’s Grand Teton and Snake River will be appearing in a new U.S. Postal Service stamp collection, the Postal Service announced recently. The new stamps feature scenes of 12 rivers.

Each stamp will include the river name in the lower left corner and the phrase “FOREVER USA” in the lower right corner. The collection of stamps acknowledges the 1968 Wild and Scenic Rivers Act signed by President Lyndon B. Johnson. The Snake River is representing over 200 segmented rivers that fall under the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, the announcement states.

Tim Palmer’s photo of Grand Teton silhouetted behind Snake River will be featured in the second row. Palmer has three other photos included in the collection.
