Grand Canyan skywalk a glass bridge – not for me!

This skywalk bridge was not there when we visited this wonder. Anyway  I would not have ventured into walking on this glass bridge built at a height of 4000 feet. Looking down through the glass floor one can see right through something I would not dare to. Not for the weak of heart.

There is news that some young man jumped to his death from here and the bridge is now closed for tourists for the time being.

I have been writing for various sites some of which have disappeared.  I have several interests including writing, photography, gardening, reaching out, cooking.  I have a blog which needs a bit of revamping and when I get some time I will go there and do justice.

I love people and have been responsible for getting together several groups such as class mates, seniors, orphaned kids and family

  1. The safety rails are not high enough. Anyone larking around, could accidentally get pushed over the rail.

    In cruise ships, I have seen the same low rails. Drunken brawls often lead to someone going over, lost to the sea. A simple slip on a deck, and a topple, over a mid-waist level rail, will do it.

  2. Not worth it to take foolish risks. However I have been up in Auckland’s Sky tower and when I get the chance I will go again, there is a part you walk on and you can see all the way down.

    It freaked me out.

    Some people pay to get on cables from a great height on Auckland’s Sky tower and go down in overalls attached to ropes. I think they are mad…

  3. I agree with you grace. I am first off deadly afraid of heights and I know I would not even be able to put one toe, let alone one foot on that skywalk. Of course the view must be magnificent but I would never be able to look down…. It is too bad about this young man jumping to his death….
