The newest edition of the Cabins Book was printed ahead of our expected schedule because of the popularity of the 2016 edition. The 2018 edition contains the same floor plans and interior photographs for each cabin that made the prior edition such a hit, and also a few corrections and clarification of the material in the 2016 version. (An example is the correction to the table in the distances of the hike-in to John's Rest and Schairer cabins.)
