I just wanted to share a picture with you, of interest - it's about the Grand Canyon Skywalk which I was learning about on BBC radio last night. It will be opening almost immediately. It belongs to the Hualapai Indian Reservation. I heard the natives saying while some are very opposed as they feel this is very sacred ground, others are hopeful this venture will be the ticket to give hope and jobs to the young people. Whichever, it seems to inspire a passion to these people.
The skywalk juts 70 feet out into the canyon - 4000 feet above the Colorado River. It can hold up to 120 people comfortably. It was built with a million feet of steel beams. It was designed to hold 72 million pounds, stand under an 8.0 magnitude earthquake 50 miles away and be able to take in excess of 100 mile per hour winds. The bottom and sides are glass, 4 inches thick.
