New Grand Canyon Observation Deck

Check out the new glass-bottomed observation deck going up at the Grand Canyon....

'Indian leaders and former astronaut Buzz Aldrin awaited their chance Tuesday to walk beyond the edge of the Grand Canyon during opening ceremonies for a glass-bottom observation deck that lets tourists gaze deep into the chasm.

Hundreds of invited guests gathered at this remote reservation to dedicate the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a horseshoe-shaped structure that extends 70 feet beyond the canyon's edge with no visible supports above or below.

For $25 plus other fees, up to 120 people at a time will be able to look down to the canyon floor 4,000 feet below, a vantage point more than twice as high as the world's tallest buildings.'
