Grand Canyon Skywalk
PEACH SPRINGS, Ariz.— Workers from a Phoenix-based company had an awe-inspiring view as they dangled from ropes to clean the glass at the Grand Canyon Skywalk.
The more than 40 panes of glass underneath the horseshoe-shaped bridge aren't easily accessible. Technicians from Abseilon USA had to hook up a series of ropes before polishing the underside Tuesday.
The structure juts out 70 feet from the edge of the Grand Canyon, offering visitors a view of the Colorado River 4,000 feet below.
Kenneth Piposar, Abseilon USA vice president says, the company's work also has included rappelling down into the Grand Canyon to retrieve water bottles, hats and other trash.
The Skywalk is at the west end of the Grand Canyon on the reservation, about 125 miles south and east of Las Vegas. It is outside the boundaries of Grand Canyon National Park.
