How's your fear of heights?


Hualapai Skywalk

Imagine walking on glass over the edge of the Grand Canyon -- 70 feet out. That's what the Their goal is to
to keep a balance between form, function and nature, while protecting the tribe's culture and values, which are deeply engraved in the canyon walls.

The Skywalk will be the featured attraction once it opens to the public in January 2006. Visitors will be able to walk around the first-ever cantilever shaped glass bridge that will be suspended more than 4,000 feet above the Colorado River and extend over the edge of the Grand Canyon. Located adjacent to The Skywalk visitor's center at Eagle Point, The Skywalk Café will feature outdoor patio seating on the edge of the canyon. The visitor's center will also offer private indoor meeting facilities.

"The Hualapai Tribe is looking to protect and care for its future generations," said Sheri Yellowhawk, CEO of Grand Canyon Resort Corp. "The Skywalk will be an attraction unlike any other in the world, but to get a true experience of the Hualapai legacy, visitors must encounter the entire destination."
I think I know a Hualapai who might be interested in visiting... I'll tag along as we hit Stinson: Coast-to-Coast.
