$25 to walk 80 yards? You can stand dozens of places on the canyon rim and get the same basic view for free.

I did--my husband made me go out on a ledge. I nearly had a heart attack, literally.

I gave birth without the aide of drugs, twice. I no longer have to prove anything to anyone.

Nuh unh.

Not when driving through tunnels means taking your life into your hands.

Some tribal members aren't too happy about it.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/16191779/

"The $30 million Skywalk, financed by a Las Vegas businessman and set to open in March, has also ignited a debate among Hualapai elders who question whether the prospect of riches is worth disturbing sacred ground.

The Hualapai believe their ancestors emerged from the earth of the Grand Canyon, and the area surrounding the project is scattered with the tribe’s sacred archaeological and burial sites.

“We have disturbed the ground,” said Dolores Honga, a 70-year-old tribal elder who regularly travels to the rim to perform traditional dances. She said workers on the Skywalk site often complain to her about nightmares.

“Our people, they died right along the land there. Their blood, their bones were shattered. They blend into the ground. It’s spiritual ground. This is why you’re awakened,” Honga said."
