Grand Canyon Skywalk opens deep divide

Los Angeles Times on the controversy surrounding a new glass walkway to be built close to a mile above the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon.

An engineering marvel or a colossal eyesore, depending on who is describing it, the horseshoe-shaped glass walkway will jut out 70 feet beyond the canyon’s edge on the Hualapai Indian Reservation just west of Grand Canyon Village. Buttressed by 1 million pounds of steel and supporting 90 tons of tempered glass, the see-through deck will give visitors a breathtaking view of the canyon.
