"Visitors who have marveled at the Grand Canyon's vistas will now have a dizzying new option: a glass-bottom observation deck allowing them to gaze into the chasm beneath their feet." Link.

Another view, this time video, with a car commercial to endure first. Link. It's very expensive to visit! $50 to park your car in the parking lot, and $25 per person to walk.

None for me, thank you! I am so afraid of heights, I'd be crawling hands and knees to the edge, take a peek, and crawl back!

What an interesting structure, Chuck B! I hope the tribe makes some money from this - and that tourists do respect the area.

Just walking around the viewing area of Seattle's Space Needle gives me motion sickness, so maybe I'll stay on terra firma with Lisa.

No way, no how... the hairs on the back of my neck are standing straight up just thinking about it. *shudder*

I'd do it, but I wouldn't go out of my way to do it.

I'm not scared of heights intellectually, but I definitely feel a little something in my gut when I'm near an edge.
