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.

    @ jayesstee, “Did they pick the bulky Security Guy to give confidence…”?


    He’s just there to keep us from jumping up and down on it.

    Nice find again, Ashraf.

    Couple of thoughts:

    I think most people in the (so-called) civilised world have heard of your (USA’s) Grand Canyon. I dwarfs all man-made structures by a mile.

    Did you notice how people tended to stick close to the sides, where there appears to be considerable support to the glass?

    Did they pick the bulky Security Guy to give confidence that the glass is very strong/thick?

    With heights I admit to being a wimp, but I would give the Skywalk a go. I would be more worried that the ends were grounded properly in the rock, than the transparency of the Skywalk floor!
