Cuba is now home to an official Continental Divide National Scenic Trail stamp, one in a series of nationwide collectible cancellation stamps. On July 3rd, 2018 National Park Travelers Club (NPTC) members Susan and Marianna Miranda from Minnesota were the first to claim the stamp. National Park Travelers Club is a non-profit social club organization devoted to spreading appreciation of the United States National Park system.
The Continental Divide National Scenic Trail (CDNST) extends 3100 miles from the Mexican border in the southern bootheel of New Mexico to the Canadian border in Montana’s Glacier National Park. The first 770 miles of the trail are in New Mexico. It passes through Cuba, one of the Continental Divide Trail Coalition’s Gateway Communities. The trail approaches Cuba from directly south of Cuba Mesa, passing through Cuba and eventually heading northeast into the San Pedro Wilderness up Los Pinos Road. Over 200 hikers attempting the journey annually stop in Cuba to rest & resupply. Cuba is proud to represent the CDNST and join over 400 National Parks in this cancellation stamp collecting program.
You can collect the stamp by bringing your copy of the “Passport To Your National Parks” available online at www.eparks.com and at bookstores to Step Into Cuba at the Public Health Office, 6362 US 550 or contact us at www.stepintocuba.org/contact-us to setup a time to collect the stamp.
