Cheap and Tasty Lunch at Skyline Blvd. & Congress Springs Road: Stop by the Mr Mustard Hot Dog Stand

On Sunday afternoon I found myself showing property just beyond the Santa Clara County border near Skyline Boulevard (Hwy 35) and Congress Springs Road (aka Big Basin Way or Hwy 9) in the hills over Saratoga.  The valley floor was fogged in and damp, but up at the crest of the Santa Cruz Mountains, the sun was warm and shining beautifully.

I waited for my clients at our meeting place, the large parking lot off Skyline.  They were running late so I meandered around, taking in the scenery, snapping some photos and enjoying the warmth of the sun.   One delay grew into another and with more time on my hands, I wandered over to the Mr. Mustard hot dog stand and bought myself some lunch: $2 for a hot dog, $1 for a can of Diet Coke. (Also offered were hot links.)  Good price, good food!
