A Moab artist's photograph of Bryce Canyon's redrock spires, or hoodoos, will soon grace a new 63-cent first-class postage stamp. The stamp - the 1-ounce rate to mail letters to Mexico and Canada and the 2-ounce rate for domestic mail - will be unveiled Friday at the Bryce Canyon National Park Visitor Center and the Salt Lake City Main Library, according to the U.S. Postal Service. People can buy the stamp at each site, and the price includes a special postmark. The postmark at the Salt Lake City Library will be available from 10 a.m. to noon; at Bryce Canyon, it will be available from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the visitor center, and from 2 to 4:30 p.m. in the lobby of the Best Western Ruby's Inn just outside the park. The Bryce Canyon stamp is part of the Scenic American Landscape Series, which also includes stamps of the Great Smokey Mountains and Yosemite Valley. The photograph is Tom Till's second to be selected for a stamp. In 2000, one of his shots of the Grand Canyon was used for a 60-cent stamp, according to the postal service. "It's really a thrill for me to have my images on stamps," Till said in a news release. "I was a serious stamp collector as a kid."
