Why fly across the Grand Canyon when you can walk:

It is one of the great natural wonders of the world -- and it will soon to be joined by an engineering marvel.

A fantastic glass bridge arcing 60-feet out over the grand canyon -- giving visitors an unobstructed view 4000-feet straight down.

It's being built on Hualapai tribal land, so even the vista on the canyon rim is currently unavailable to tourists. It took nearly a decade of negotiations to get everyone on board, but the hope is tourism will boost the tribe's resources.

I'm just in a commenting mood today.

As for this view of the canyon, spectacular is probably a good word for it, however, nothing compares to hiking through it for 5 days with everything you need to live on your back. Amber and I still talk about doing that again - tho we'll take GPS if we do it solo...
