La Cueva del Indio (Puerto Rico)
(Priority Mail Stamp)

With this new Priority Mail stamp the Postal Service celebrates one of Puerto Rico’s many magical and mysterious caves, La Cueva del Indio. The stamp depicts a sunset view of La Cueva del Indio, or the cave of the Indian, which is located near Arecibo on Puerto Rico’s north coast. The cave gets its name from the great number of engravings, known as petroglyphs, found on the walls. Illustrator Dan Cosgrove worked under the art direction of Greg Breeding.

USA 2016 Columbia River Gorge stamp
Columbia River Gorge
(Priority Mail Express stamp)

Priority Mail Express: Columbia River Gorge With this new Priority Mail Express stamp, available in panes of 10, the Postal Service celebrates the grandeur of the Columbia River Gorge. Approximately 80 miles long and up to 4,000 ft. deep, the gorge runs along the Columbia River to form part of the border between Oregon and Washington. The stamp art captures the beauty of the Columbia River as it winds its way through the steep cliffs of the Cascade Mountain Range. The historic Vista House sitting atop Crown Point and overlooking the river 725 ft. below shimmers in the golden light of the setting sun. Illustrator Dan Cosgrove of Chicago worked under the direction of Phil Jordan of Falls Church, VA, to create the stamp image.
