Skywalk 4,000 Feet above Colorado River

gizmag Article: Hualapai Tribe Building Skywalk 4,000 Feet above Colorado River
The Hualapai Tribe is building a Skywalk over the Grand Canyon (pictured) to enhance the tourist experience. The Skywalk, opening by the end of the year, goes right along with the "Dream" and "Think Big" theme.

The glass-bottom 130-foot horseshoe-shaped bridge cantilevers over the edge of the Grand Canyon, 4,000 feet above the Colorado River and will protrude 60 feet from the rim at its extremity.

Well, learn you something everyday. Today I learned that glass walkways + 4000 feet = C. Light with major heebie-jeebies.
