Lake Louise Coming to an Envelope Near You!

First, the bad news.  Postage stamps in Canada are going to cost a lot more, starting today.

Now the good news.  The first stamps with the new price feature World Heritage Sites in Canada, including one of the Lake Louise area.  Our friend Jeff Douglas, who works as a guide at the Chateau Lake Louise, is featured in the stamp at the summit of Mount Victoria.  It looks pretty good, but...

... the amazing shot is on the full souvenir sheet.  At the bottom right, Lake Louise is reflecting the golden light of sunrise, and the sky is alive with the dramatic colours of morning.  Click on it to see it at full size.

We tried to buy some at the Post Office, but Jeff has bought out the entire stock! We'll have to wait for the backorder to come in.
