Grand Canyon Skywalk is a transparent bridge 4,000 feet above the Colorado River [Amazing Photo of the Day]

How many dotTechies have been to, or heard of, the Grand Canyon? For those of you that haven’t, the Grand Canyon is, quiet literally, the world’s largest hole in the ground. At its deepest point, the Grand Canyon is 6,000 feet (1,800 meters) deep. How many people have the guts to walk out on a glass bridge suspended above the Grand Canyon? Check it out:

The skywalk, as you can probably tell, isn’t 100% transparent from the bottom. Still, it is glass. A few inches of glass between you and death. How’s that for poetic.
