Photo of the glass-faced Skywalk protruding from the Grand Canyon

On March 28, 2007, a new tourist attraction "Sky Walk" opened in the Grand Canyon. This is a pedestrian bridge protruding from the moss, the farthest part is 70 feet (about 21 m) from the moss, and the height from the valley bottom is 4000 feet (about 1200 m). Tempered glass is stretched over the U-shaped steel frame and you can see the bottom of the valley.

Details are as follows.
If you slide your legs, it is a long time.

I think that it is solidly made, but I am scared that people are still there.

Of course, the feet are also glassed. Some people may stop their legs and move.

Appeal that it is higher than Empire State Building and Petronas Twin Towers, Taipei 101.

There is also a picture of the state in the middle of construction. It looks like a huge magnet.

It is working towards opening.

When the storm comes, the mackerel will collapse and it will fall.

The Japanese version of the official website is here. From the bottom left of the top page "Until" Sky Walk "is made" you can see a movie of the state of construction.
