    If there are mineral rights involved and anything like coal and oil on the land Wyoming will try to make a profit off of it. They move high ways for coal mines in that state, sometimes the same high way a few times.

    That's certainly a great deal for Wyoming if they can get away with it. If National Parks are government owned land manned, managed, and overseen by government employees called Park Rangers following government rules and regulations and the government is agreeable to paying $107M for 2 square miles of land they already own that is physically located in Wyoming ... my thought would be we should all get out the Vaseline because we're going to be screwed AGAIN.
