Grand Canyon Skywalk

Posted: 2007-08-21 02:43 PM   
Kerrie,
Yep, its open, although it sits out about 2 hours away from the Grand Canyon South Rim Park. It is, quite literally, in the middle of nowhere, on an Indian Reservation, and it is not cheap. The basic package is $82/person, you can not take a camera on the skywalk with you and you are a captive audience on the Reservation - you eat there or you don't eat. We opted not to go - it would have added another day to an already tight schedule, not to mention the $240 in fees and another hotel night. There are a number of look out points, both on the North Rim and South Rim, that you can hike out to that let you look on three directions over the canyon.

The trip was terrific and we had a blast. My son loves geology so this was his thing but all of it was amazing! I am so glad you enjoyed the pictures!

Thanks for the read

Kerrie,
Thanks for reading my reports. Amed is still infinitely beautiful and above all very quiet. There were so many ceremonies going on that we could not go to them all. The Barong dance was absolutely the best. The villa I describe is for hire and I can recommend it.

Hi Kerrie,

Thanks for your wishes. Yes Srilanka was full of beautiful sights untouched and unspoiled by us humans.

The elephant orphanage had left me with mixed feelings too. Definitely, they are doing a good job caring for orphaned and injured elephants which would otherwise not survive in the wild. For example, I saw an inmate which had only 3 legs because of landmine blast. But I totally agree that a more humane and loving care is definitely required.

Regards,
Shalini

Hey Kerrie,

Thanks for your note. I must admit doing a grade 5 river was the most frightening thing I've ever done, second to that was my bungy.

But now its just a memory, I'm so happy I braved it as one of my mottos is 'try nearly everything once'. With hindsight I should have just done the 1/2 day trip and that would have been just fine.

But you must give it a go, the adrenalin rush is fabulous.

All the best

Amanda

PS nice to see you around again!

Kerrie,
Thanks for reading my Jimbaran journal. I had forgotten about the bomb, some two years ago, was it? Don't know ifthat was the reason why it was so very quiet. As a matter of fact it was quiet in Lovina, Ubud, Kuta and other places we went.
I agree Amed is far nicer,very quiet there too. I have almost finished my Amed report will publish it when back from a short trip to Ireland.

Hello :)

I must say, that boat was for me insipration. Small village, the life goes with his own way...and suddenly this small unusual boat on the bank of the river...
Thank for Your comment.
Have a nice day!

Hong Kong

Hi Kerrie,
Yes, I am back again. Thousands of photos to sort out and lots of reports to write. HK was absolutely fantastic and I was glad we stayed there for 9 days so that we could see some of the less visited parts.
We also enjoyed our two weeks in Amed and another two weeks travelling in Bali.

Well deserved RoM

Hi Kerrie
Congratulations. I always enjoy your reports but somehow I missed this one. I was rather preoccupied in April. Anyway, thank goodness for the award - that drew my attention to it now!
Cheers
David
