​Nahanni National Park will be featured on a new Canada Post stamp, thanks to a park warden in Fort Simpson, N.W.T. who snapped a shot of Virginia Falls. 

The picture is of a single canoe floating in front of the falls, one of the starting points for travellers heading out on journeys through the park.

The stamp is part of the Canada Post's UNESCO World Heritage Sites series.

Jackie Zinger is the park warden in Nahanni National Park who took the photo the first time she saw the falls in 2010.

“To me it really captured the moment of that area and the vastness and the beauty of Virginia Falls and I just took out my point-and-shoot waterproof camera and just captured a moment that is now being shared across Canada."

Zinger submitted the photo as part of a Parks Canada collection, and says she didn't know her picture was being used until a colleague showed her a brochure in the Fort Simpson post office.

“I looked over his shoulder and I immediately recognized the photograph as one that I took.”

Zinger says it's a huge honour.

“It’s one of my favourite images of the park.”
