Fantastic Pictures - Skywalk at Grand Canyon West

The glass balcony overhanging Grand Canyon opened in 2006.

1) Skywalk at Grand Canyon West

Guy would love to make the Skywalk and savour the view.  Will is not so sure.

Skywalk at Grand Canyon

The Skywalk is situated on the Hualapai Indian Reservation at a new resort called Grand Canyon West.  Over 100 visitors can use the glass observatory at any one time.  The glass bottom overhangs the canyon by about 65 feet.  Needless to say, the vista is breathtaking.  At this point there is a 4,000 ft drop to the Colorado River below.  Part of the design brief is to withstand an earthquake and 100 mile an hour winds.

2) Brave Photographer - Pictures of Grand Canyon

Here we have one photographer photographing another photographer at work. Hans van de Vorst took the the following pictures at the Grand Canyon, Arizona.  Unfortunately, we don't know the name of the brave photographer in the pictures below.  Here is Hans own account of the incident.

I was simply stunned seeing this guy standing on this solitary rock in the Grand Canyon.
The canyon's depth is 900 meters here. The rock on the right is safe.

Watching this guy on his thong sandals, with a camera and a tripod I asked myself 3 questions:

1. How did he climb that rock?
2. Why not take that sunset picture on that rock to the right, which is perfectly safe?
3. How will he get back?

After the sun set behind the canyon's horizon he packed his things (leaving only one hand available)
and prepared himself for the jump. This took about 2 minutes.
At that point he had the full attention of the crowd.

After that, he jumped on his thong sandals...
The canyon's depth is 900 meters here.

Now you can see that the adjacent rock is higher so he tried to land lower, which is quite steep
and tried to use his one hand to grab the rock.

Which would be the worst driving hazard? Blind curves, big trucks, or soft shoulders?
