Grand Canyon Skywalk

An artist's undated rendering provided by Grand Canyon West shows the Hualapai Indian Tribe's Skywalk, a glass-bottom observation deck 4,000 feet above the Colorado River hanging over the western edge of the Grand Canyon. The Hualapai Indian tribe is hoping to change its fortunes by building the Skywalk as a tourist attraction. But the $30 million Skywalk, set to open in March, has also ignited a debate among Hualapai elders who question whether the prospect of riches is worth disturbing sacred ground.

Hmmmm....not sure if I agree with this structure. I reckon nature's spectacular scenery is best enjoyed in its pristine state. Still I suppose it would be an interesting experience to walk out on that thing!
