    No way I'd trust that glass at 3 feet much less 3,500 feet. Too much pucker factor for me!:eek:

    Supposedly the lamination on the glass would prevent someone from falling even if it totally shattered. But seeing the glass totally shatter under your feet...The heart attack would still kill you.

    IDK, but the Skywalk attracts 350,000 visitors per year. The Hualapai Tribe (loosely translated means drunken Indians who can't run Casino) took over the bridge in 2012 and now charge about $100.00 for each visitor. This pleases the Indian's Ancestors as they claim this sacred ground belongs to them.

    They also employ Professional Photographers (the two sober ones) to take pictures for visitors, as personal cameras and phones are not allowed!:eek:

    Edited for accuracy and humor.;)
