Two eye-catching roadside attractions based north of 60 - one in the Yukon and one in the Northwest Territories - are featured on Canada Post stamps that went on sale this week.

The Signpost Forest in Watson Lake, Yukon, and the giant inukshuk in Hay River, N.W.T., are featured on limited-edition 54-cent stamps released nationwide on Monday. They are available in books of eight.

"Locals are quite enthused about it, for sure," Leslie Gonder, the acting postmaster in Watson Lake, told CBC News.

Also featured in the four-stamp set are "Mr. PG," an eight-metre tall "log man" that greets visitors to Prince George, B.C., and a massive Easter egg in Vegreville, Alta.

The set is the first in Canada Post's Roadside Attractions series, which will run over three years.
