The Grand Canyon Skywalk is a transparent horseshoe-shaped cantilever bridge and tourist attraction in Arizona near the Colorado River on the edge of a side canyon in the Grand Canyon West area of 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 precisely vertical drop directly under the skywalk is between 500 ft (150 m) and 800 ft (240 m).
Commissioned and owned by the Hualapai Indian tribe, it was unveiled March 20, 2007, and opened to the general public on March 28, 2007. It is accessed via the Grand Canyon West Airport terminal or a 120-mile (190 km) drive from Las Vegas, which includes a 10-mile (16 km) stretch of dirt road which is currently under development. The Skywalk is east of Meadview and north of Peach Springs with Kingman being the closest major city.

Bonjour, cher ami Burak,
J'ai eu l'occasion de voir des reportages relatifs au grand canyon, et à cette passerelle, en avancée transparente. Véritablement impressionnant tant au niveau du spectacle que du coût demandé pour avoir le privilège de découvrir l'incroyable.
L'image présentée est fabuleuse et transcrit bien l'immensité des lieux.
La femme qui se penche est bien courageuse ou téméraire pour ramener un souvenir de ce voyage !!!
Excellente année 2012, mon cher ami Burak.

Merhaba Burak Bey
Kayalıkların görüntüsü gerçekten ilginç ve harika.
Uçurumun kenerındaki kadının cesaretine diyecek bir şey bulamıyorum.
Masmavi gökyüzünde bulutların görüntüleri de çok hoş .
Başlığınız manzarayı çok güzel açıklıyor.
Fotoğrafı çektiğiniz yeri de ayrıca merak ettim doğrusu.

voici une vue de ce canyon vraiment inhabituelle, je t'avoue que je n'oserais pas trop aller sur ce promontoir.
J'adore, une magnifique prise de vue.

Lucky for you the sun is shinning and the day is very clear. When I went to the Skywalk it was so foggy I can barely see it from where you took this picture. Sharp details and wonderful colors. Very well done, tfs.

A fantastic shot of the Grand Canyon that brings back nice memories. Good warm cold color contrasts with excellent sharpness. The people on the skywalk add scale. Tfs!

Excellent shot and good POV and angel to show how the walkway extended out from the cliff. Not a place for people with fear of height. I can only imagine. I have been to GC many times, but never been here. So it is good to see this shot.

This is a splendid shot in daylight of the Great Canyon. The sharpness and light are perfect Very well composed with splendid colors and saturation. The lighting is also amazing as well as perfect POV too. Very well done, TFS.

I didn't visit this place in my trip. I liked the angle you used well the curious structure and the tourists at same time we can see the river. TFS.
