…The Skywalk is scarry?


The Grand Canyon Skywalk is a horseshoe-shaped glass walkway that will jut out 70 feet over the canyon’s edge, giving people a vomit inducing view that has been until now reserved for the birds. As it nears completion (it’s scheduled for a March of 2007 opening), controversy continues regarding the Hualapai Indian Reservation’s planned expansion of the area surrounding the Skywalk, though judging by the mantra of “if you build it, they will come”, I don’t think any amount of controversy is going to slow the masses of people who will want to test their fear of heights on this colossal creation.
