FAR & WIDE SERIES
2019 FAR & WIDE SERIES
Explore ancient ocean-sculpted monoliths with this single stamp from a booklet of oversized-rate stamp featuring the unique limestone islands of Quebec’s Mingan Archipelago National Park Reserve. This is one of nine definitive stamps in the second issue of From Far and Wide, a multi-year series featuring some of Canada’s most beautiful landscapes.
These distinctive formations are the result of an ancient limestone plateau that rose up through continental shifting and was carved by the waters of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The archipelago’s more-than 1,000 islands and islets feature monoliths, caves, archways and grottoes. The area is home to rare plants, several species of marine birds, seals, whales and other animals.
