Who in Minnesota?

In a twist on our usual game of “Where in Duluth?” we instead ask, in reference to the photo above, who in Minnesota? The image above was shot circa 1970 near what is now Elm Creek Park Reserve, a 4,900-acre park straddling Maple Grove, Champlin and Dayton, near Osseo.

On the right in the photo is Gary Lund, former owner of Gary’s Place, a bar in Carver. These days Gary’s Place is Lisa’s Place, where there will be a benefit for Gary on June 1.

But who is that on the left? He is famous enough that you should know.

Rod Raymond?

That's a good guess in terms of physical likeness, but this person is much more famous than Rod, and Rod would have been maybe 5 or 6 years old in 1970.

Makes sense, his first wife, Annie, was a Gustie.

I thought I might catch you with the photo's file name, but you have covered your tracks.

Fantastic! I never knew John Denver had a connection to Duluth. This is good history.

Ahem. Not Duluth. Minnesota.
