Himalayan Food in Montrose & Meeting Jim & JoAnn from Cheyenne, WY

Aloha Everyone,

Montrose is a small town with a population of 19,015 in 2013, promoting itself as the "Gateway to Black Canyon." J.J. and I drove around looking for a place for lunch. We spotted "Guru" a Himalayan Restaurant.

Zuntara, the restaurant host told us that there are four Nepalese families in Montrose and two opened Himalayan restaurants. The buffet selection at Guru was large. I especially enjoyed their vegetarian dishes. It was definitely a memorable meal.

Gentle lady with a poetic name, Zuntara (Zun means moon and Tara means star), she played the Tibetan singing bowls and invited me to try them.

Jim and JoAnn from Cheyenne, Wyoming stopped by to ask about Honu at one of the overlooks at Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. (BCGNP). Recently retired, they are thinking about buying an RV.

Tonight we are staying at a camping ground inside the park. Very fortunate that we were able to get the last of the "first-come, first-serve" sites with electric hookup. It even has a section for a tent I can use to practice Kundalini yoga.

Because of the high elevation, we are expecting a chilly night.

Aloha -- Cathi
