Grand Canyon's Glass Walkway to Open Next March

The 1,500-member Hualapai tribe announced last week that the Skywalk -- a giant, 30-million-dollar steel-and-glass walkway -- will open to the public in March 2007.

The Skywalk will jut out 70 feet (21 meters) from the canyon rim, allowing tourists to go for a stroll with nothing between their feet and the Colorado River -- 4,000 feet (1,220 meters) below -- except for four inches (ten centimeters) of glass.
