Idaho scene featured on new ‘forever’ postage stamp

Here's a news item from the Associated Press: BOISE, Idaho (AP) ― The U.S. Postal Service has picked a photograph of an iconic Idaho scene to grace one of its new forever postage stamps. The aerial photograph shows three log rafts floating down an unidentified river on the way to a sawmill. The Idaho Statesman reports ( ) the image was taken by Tom Brakefield of Tennessee while flying in an ultra-light aircraft in 2005. The stamp is part of the new “Earthscapes” series, which explores some of the nation's most visually striking landscapes from the air. Others include Utah's Monument Valley, a network of highways that resemble a basket weave and icebergs bobbing in a lake. The new stamps will be available Oct. 1 in post offices nationwide.
