#C149 Glacier National Park - Montana 2012 Postage Stamp
 
This international rate stamp celebrates Montana's Glacier National Park. Often described as one of the most stunning national parks in the U.S., Glacier was established on May 11, 1910.

The stamp image shows Logan Pass, the highest point on the park's spectacular Going-to-the-Sun Road. Peaks of the Northern Rocky Mountains fill the photo's background. In the foreground, melting snowbanks reveal a lush meadow dusted with wildflowers.

Named for the glaciers that sculpted the landscape more than 10,000 years ago and for the Little Ice Age glaciers there today, Glacier National Park preserves more than a million acres of rugged peaks and valleys, alpine meadows, spectacular lakes, and dense forest. The park is a haven for wildlife with 277 species of birds and 67 species of mammals, including the bald eagle, wolverine, lynx, mountain goat, bighorn sheep, and wolf.

The Glacier National Park stamp was designed by art director Ethel Kessler and features a photo by nature photographer Michael Melford.

The stamp is part of the Scenic American Landscapes series.
