KALISPELL - The U.S. Postal Service is featuring an image of Logan Pass in Glacier National Park on an international rate postage stamp to be issued later this month.

The Daily Inter Lake reports the stamp was designed by art director Ethel Kessler, based on an image taken by National Geographic photographer Michael Melford.

The image shows Logan Pass, the highest point along the park's Going-to-the-Sun Road. Melting snowbanks reveal a meadow against a backdrop of Glacier peaks.

The 85-cent stamp, part of the Postal Service's "Scenic American Landscapes" series, goes on sale on Jan. 19.
