THE ICEFIELDS PARKWAY
Named for the icefields that top the Rockies, Alberta's Icefields Parkway travels in the shadow of the Great Divide from the Trans Canada Highway near Lake Louise to Jasper. It passes through Banff and Jasper national parks, and is known as one of the world's greatest mountainous highroads. Until recently, only packtrains travelled this route.
CANADA ON DISPLAY
This stamp was designed by Bradbury Design of Regina, with Catharine Bradbury as design principal and Karin Uusikorpi as associate designer. The challenge of this stamp lay in promoting the diversity and beauty of Canadian tourist attractions in an appealing and effective manner. Aimed at American and international communities, the stamp showcases the talents of the photographer, who set out to capture the essence of this attraction.
