Philosateleian Post to issue Tenaya Lake stamp

On October 1, 2021, Philosateleian Post, a private local post based in San Antonio, Texas, will issue a special stamp picturing Tenaya Lake in Yosemite National Park. The blue and green 1-stamp design is based on a photograph taken by Philosateleian Post’s proprietor, Kevin Blackston, during a 2013 trip to California.

At 8,150 feet above sea level, Tenaya Lake has an altitude more than twice that of the floor of nearby Yosemite Valley, and the water that flows out of the lake ultimately makes its way through a steep canyon down to the Valley. The lake was named after Chief Tenaya of the Ahwahnechee, who lived in the area.

The Tenaya Lake stamp is Philosateleian Post’s second to feature a scene from Yosemite National Park. The first, issued in 2014, featured a view of Yosemite Valley itself.

Technical Specifications

Format: sheets of 55. Design size: 36×21 mm. Separation method: perforated 12. Adhesive: water-activated dry gum. Printing method: inkjet.
