Grand Canyon Skywalk

Grand Canyon Skywalk

The Grand Canyon Skywalk is a tourist attraction near the Colorado River on the edge of a side canyon in the Grand Canyon West area in the U.S. state of Arizona. It was funded by the Hualapai  Indian tribe in partnership with Chinese-American businessman David Jin.The horseshoe-shaped glass walkway stands at a 3,600 feet (1,100 m) height above the floor of the canyon, a height exceeding those of the world’s tallest skyscrapers.The Skywalk is not directly above the main canyon, Granite Gorge, which contains the Colorado River. Instead it extends over a side canyon and affords a view into the main canyon.USGS topographic maps show the elevation at the Skywalk’s location as 4,770 ft (1,450 m) and the elevation of the Colorado River in the base of the canyon as 1,160 ft (350 m), and they show that the height of the exactly vertical drop directly under the skywalk is between 500 ft (150 m) and 800 ft (240 m).colorado6 Grand Canyon Skywalk
