While at the museum this past Sunday and Monday, Ed Lecuyer mentioned he has seen updated aerial images for Maine, including Alna.  I just checked Yahoo maps and Mapquest tonight.  Mapquest (www.mapquest.com) has some very recent satellite images (within 18 months old, it appears).  The images show the cut right-of-way all the way to the top of the mountain.  Here is  http://www.mapquest.com/maps?city=Alna&state=ME&address=%5B165-363%5D+Cross+Rd&zipcode=04535&country=US&latitude=44.06255&longitude=-69.6292&geocode=STREET  Select "Aerial Image" and then zoom in on the right-of-way.

By comparison, Yahoo's images are ancient.  They show the right-of-way only cleared into Davis curve!
