New River Gorge Bridge featured on U.S. postage stamp

This new stamp honors the New River Gorge Bridge, the third largest arch bridge in the world. Its 1700-foot span is the longest steel arch in the Western hemisphere. The bridge is so tall that the Washington Monument could stand under it with 300 feet to spare.

The $4.95 Priority Mail stamp features a digital illustration of the bridge over the New River Gorge by artist Dan Cosgrove, depicting the bridge near sunset.
