A Skywalk experience

The Hualapai Nation built a glass walkway over the Grand Canyon so you can walk over the cliff and look down 4000 feet, through glass. Daniel Terdiman describes his experience in Clearly, there’s nothing like Grand Canyon Skywalk. “A visit to Grand Canyon West and its glass bridge over and into the canyon is an experience for a lifetime.”

It does have some of the appurtenances of a tourist trap. The tour is rather expensive and picture taking on the walkway is prohibited.

only about a three-hour drive from Las Vegas. … The Skywalk is a glass bridge that juts out into the canyon, 4,000 feet above the Colorado River. … The view itself is practically priceless. Well, OK, maybe pricey is a better word. A ticket for adult admission to the Skywalk will run $81, but can cost much more with options such as a horse ride, or a helicopter ride.

Maybe, if you’re into that sort of thing, it might be something novel to see.
