Two rivers that run through Nebraska are pictured on a new series of stamps featuring wild and scenic rivers.
Forever stamps showing the Niobrara and the Missouri rivers were part of a pane of 12 stamps released Tuesday. Individual stamps cost 55 cents.
The Niobrara River photo was taken by Michael Melford, a National Geographic photographer, and the Missouri River photo was taken by Bob Wick, a staff photographer for the Bureau of Land Management.
Other rivers are the Merced, Owyhee, Koyukuk, Snake, Flathead, Skagit, Deschutes, Tlikakila, Ontonagon and Clairion.
All the rivers are designated Wild and Scenic Rivers, which means they are remarkable for values including fish and wildlife, geology, recreation and cultural or historical significance. They are allowed to flow freely through natural settings without man-made alterations, according to the U.S. Postal Service.
