As Route Blue evolves into the digital rural community builder it has always been physically, Elvis has to be mentioned. There is a mural in Merritt on the Merritt Dessert Inn. Why? well yes Merritt is the Country Music Capitol of Canada and that is a reason. But NO. Not the reason. The reason is that it is said that Elvis and his crew  drove by Merritt in the late 1950s on his way to Vancouver. A wonderful woman named Dolly, who runs the only official Elvis fan club in Canada had a dream. Her dream and support of this fan club led to this Elvis Presley Estate sanctioned mural. Yes there is a signed contract with EPE and yes it was is a highlight of the Route Blue Creative Highway Experience. Worth the drive and the visit to Merritt, BC. Elvis is on the building .elvis 2007 100
