Wow, the Grand Canyon Skywalk , a joint project of a Chinese businessman and the Hualapi Tribe, looks like it will offer an amazing view of the Grand Canyon. It appears the Skywalk will open very soon and no later than March 2007. I have mixed feelings about this type of attraction because in one way it ‘mars’ the pristine landscape you are there to see, but in another way it allows you to experience that landscape more dramatically and intimately. For me the increased focus and economic development aspects of these projects make them worthwhile, and it’s certainly a more wholesome approach to funding tribal needs than a casino.
