Grand Canyon skywalk

Grand Canyon skywalk

How cool is this? An Indian tribe building a Grand Canyon resort is including a 70’ long glass skywalk that will jut out from the canyon wall, 4000’ over the Colorado River. (I got it from the Urban Legends web site, which declares this to be true, not a legend.)

Check out the photo and description. The walkway and sides are going to be 4 inch glass and the superstructure will be 1-million pounds of steel, engineered to absorb vibrations and withstand a magnitude 8.0 earthquake 50 miles away or 100 mph winds.

Would you walk out on it?
