I've often wondered how the states ranked but haven't been motiviated enough to do the research.
Thanks for posting this. Some of the numbers are very remarkable (at least to my European eyes -- eg MD, TX).
I hold it with Chief Seattle in this case.
I didn't know that much of Nevada and Utah were publicly owned. I do know I love both of those states and enjoy them for their scenery and often their solitude.
I had no idea that much of Utah was public. Lets keep it that way.
