Men in Trees with Anne Heche In Squamish, B.C.

For all you Canucks, I just have to share this email I got today, from Jennifer at the Coast and Mountains Tourism Region, in Vancouver, B.C.

"I invite you to discover Squamish, BC – outdoor recreation capital of Canada, located in the heart of the Sea to Sky Highway and the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, a haven for rock-climbers and the nesting place to over 3000 bald eagles every winter. Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it? But you are probably wondering how this fits with the likes of A-lister’s and Hollywood hotshots.

Perhaps if I told you Squamish is known in television-land as a town called Elmo, Alaska, where the population is 90% men, it may sound more familiar.Squamish’s latest role is playing host to celebs like Anne Heche, who stars in “Men in Trees”, a Northern Exposure meets Sex in the City show about a downtrodden relationship coach who finds herself hunkering down in this little backwards town to escape life for a while. So, if you haven’t started watching the show, it’s time to start, and the next time you are in Squamish, aka Elmo, check out the locations of your favourite scenes – and, as for me, I will keep hoping for the 90% men statistic to magically come true!". . .Jennifer
I toured this gorgeous country before the filming started, and posted my photos online. Pop over to SnapshotJourneys Canada and have a look at the Upper and Lower Sunshine Coast.
