Grand Canyon Skywalk

 

I saw many beautiful places, I read about building highest and most famous bridges, but this one is above all.

Suspended almost 4000 feet above the Colorado River, close to the sky, on the edge of the Grand Canyon, the Glass Bridge is meant to  create the most profound connection between humans and the wonders of nature.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Skywalk will not include only the glass bridge, but also a 6,000 square-foot visitor’s center on three levels which will contain a museum, movie theater, VIP lounge, gift shop, and several restaurants and bars, and the marvelous Skywalk Café. The Official Public Opening Of The Skywalk  will be in less than a month, on March 28, 2007.

  1. I would love to see the Grand Canyon-not sure I could step out on that though…

    It opens on my birthday!

  2. Are you afraid of heights? 😀 I think it would be really exciting to walk on that bridge. 🙂

  3. It’s not so much the height, as hitting the ground….. 😉

  4. I’M TERRIFIED OF HEIGHTS BUT I SAY THIS ROCKS AND NEXT TIME I VISIT THIS WIL BE MY FIRST STOP

  5. JUST A WALK IN THE PARK, FIRST STOP FOR ME ,THE NEXT TIME I VISIT THE GRAND CANYON.

  6. Can’t wait to see this! Love the west!!

  7. 🙂 doing a report on this, best thing in the whole canyon. {i want to see it so bad}{dont realy want to go on it tho}

  8. Walking over a glass platform (at the Grand Canyon or anywhere else) is a weird experience – seeing empty space beneath your feet. But I personally found the SkyWalk to be a bit of a let down – the view through the floor really exciting.
