That stretch from 112 to Beaver Brook...and, on to the summit of 
Moosilauke...is really tough southbound. In fact, I've called it the 
last really hard work for a southbounder.  The reason I asked the 
question is that i have two different sets of maps...1988 and 1995, I 
believe. The older set shows BB L-t about a half-mile from the 
road...which would put it right about where the climb begins. The newer 
map shows it closer to the top....where it was in 1998.  i wondered if 
it had been moved, or if the map was wrong.
