The award-winning photographer/reporter’s, who works full -time for the Osoyoos Times, photo of Carlsbad Caverns National Park in New Mexico now graces a stamp celebrating the centennial of the U.S. National Park Service. Carlsbad Caverns is one more than 300 limestone caves in a fossil reef laid down by an inland sea 240 million to 280 million years ago. The photo was taken by Richard on vacation in 2009.
The USPS says McGuire’s “dramatic” photograph of the interior of Carlsbad Caverns is the fifth of 16 Forever Stamp images revealed over a three-week period to celebrate the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary.
