Grand Canyon, USA

Grand Canyon is located in Arizona , USA.  The Grand Canyon is 446 kilometers long and about 29 kilometers wide (with depth reaching to a little more than 1,800 meters) Most of the flow of the Colorado River runs through Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon is known as one of the 7 natural wonders of the world, due to its huge size – Even though the Grand Canyon is not the deepest canyon on Earth it is probably the most famous Canyon. (Cotahuasi Canyon in Peru is the Deepest). The Grand Canyon most popular tourist attraction is “Skywalk”. Skywalk is a transparent (made out of reinforced glass) bridge. The bridge is shaped as beam (anchored at one end). Skywalk is sitting on the very edge Grand Canyon.
On the other hand conservation organizations like Grand Canyon Trust, are focused on protecting the Grand Canyon as a wild and awe-inspiring place, Grand Canyon Trust encourages sustainable community based development that benefits native peoples, The massive helicopter traffic and noise-pollution generated by Vegas traffic to the Skybridge is a concern for all those who love the canyon, so it is something to keep in mind while thinking of visiting  the Skybridge.
