The Grand Canyon Skywalk.


The Hualapai Nation is building a glass Skywalk, which will extend 70 feet over a 4,000 foot cliff. The glass floor will give visitors a 720 degree view of the awe-inspiring Grand Canyon.
Thanks Lady for sharing this very cool architectural wonder!

Hi, Sawsee. Glad you enjoyed it.

I don't know if it's my computer or what, but I can't get the link to come up.

I don't think that they could pay me enough to walk out on that thing, though. I couldn't even walk out onto the Rio Grande Gorge bridge!

Hi Lady! I've walked out onto the Rio Grande Gorge bridge, but it shook everytime a large truck roared by!

I agree, the Skywalk would be a scary experience.

The link loads for me; I wonder if it is just very slow to load? I'll see if I can find a better link.

How was your Christmas lunch?

Wow, that's impressive, but I agree, I don't think you could pay me to walk on it!!

Hi c4L! If I ever attempted the skywalk, I think I would use the horizontal crawl technique!

Lady-in-Gray said...

Sawsee: LOL! That's exactly what I was thinking.

Sawsee said...

Lady! I'm sure we would get quite the looks from other patrons, if we were crawling along on all fours.

Lady-in-Gray said...

Oh, no, Sawsee. The horizontal belly crawl was more like what I had in mind!

I wonder if they'll give refunds to people who get to the door and just can't step out there .....

Sawsee said...

Lady! LOL! Yes, the famous belly crawl technique!

I wonder if slithering out onto the ledge would be easier if one was on their back staring up at the sky. Once confidence grew, the subject would begin to slowly roll to the side, glancing sideways into the abyss.

I doubt the owners would refund money, rather I would expect them to hire a few robust blokes to push the stalled masses onto their transparent attraction.
