United States of America – Oklahoma

Great herds of bison, as many as 30-60 million, once roamed North America. By 1888, only 541 remained in the U.S. Efforts began to prevent the species from becoming extinct. Today, about 250,000 bison live in the U.S. and large herds can be found in many natural areas, such as the Tall Grass Prairie Preserve in Oklahoma. Thanks to David who was visiting.

From a set of stamps at postcard rate featuring Hawaiian shirt, issued this year. Some people have traced the “casual Friday” trend to Hawai’i, where Aloha shirts were first worn to work on Friday as they were more comfortable than a suit and tie in the state's climate.
