USFS to close Tongass cabins

The US Forest Service plans to decommission 47 cabins in Southeast Alaska's Tongass National Forest. There are 196 cabins in the program. The cabins selected for decommissioning are among the least used in the network of cabins. The FS says that maintenance costs are far higher than the funds they receive and the money they take in from visitors.
