On my last vacation in September of 2009 to Glacier National Park, we went to the Grand Coulee Dam, and in the visitors center was this blow up of a three cent stamp.  All the dams in the Washington/Montana area generate hydroelectric power, but what I didn't know is the tour guide said that the...
