Glowing Gravestone

The Boss headstone described as a glowing gravestone is located about 2/3 of the way into the cemetery just to the left of the entry road. You can recognize it because it is larger than most of the other stones. (You need to know this because it is hard to check all the gravestones in the dark and it only "glows" if you stand in just the right place to catch a reflection from the lights of the town.)

It might be better in wintertime, but in summer, this may be the most mosquito-laden area in all of Minnesota.
