Default Jasper NP Patrol Cabins

Hey all (forgive me if I'm in the wrong place with this),

Few days ago I was wandering through the Calgary Central Library and came upon a collection of 1986 planning documents for each of the four mountain parks, which was pretty neat. My history isn't clear on when the planning mentality started to change, as I think it was mid 1990s when a lot of the big conservation policy changes took place (before I was born, LOL), so these may have been before any drastic changes or cabin closures in that decade.

In the Jasper plan, I came upon the attached map. I've never seen a map of any mountain park detailing patrol cabins, and there were a few that surprised me, notably:

1. East of Brazeau Lake, what looks to be at the headwaters of Isaac Creek and east below Chocolate Mountain (not the Brazeau River or Isaac Creek cabins)
2. Partway to Fortress Lake on the Athabasca downstream from the Chaba confluence
3. Partway up Deer Creek (just above the letter D on the map)

I am not as familiar with cabins on the N or S Boundaries, so I'm not really sure if there are any there that are surprising. At any rate, figured I'd share and see if anyone sees anything interesting here. I am assuming there are a few on the map that no longer exist, and would love to know more about the above 3 if anyone has any knowledge.
