Walton v. Dana

In Walton v. Dana, 609 P.2d 461, 463-64 (Wyo. 1980), the Court found it unreasonable, given the legislature's recognized intent under 24-9-101, to force the Danas to utilize a route to U.S. Highway 89 to which they had no enforceable right to use or to force them to build a road across the grantors' land over swamps and a canal. The Court also recognized that the distance to the Muddy String Road of one and a half miles, as compared to the distance of only one-quarter of a mile to U.S. Highway 89 was a valid consideration based on convenience.
