Leaving Green, Heading West: Grand Canyon West, AZ

This story is Part 2 of Robert Ellis and William Lamkin's photography trip to the American West.

By Robert Ellis, Robert Ellis Woodworking

Grand Canyon West is around 2-1/2 hours from Las Vegas. This portion of the Grand Canyon is not part of the National Park Service but is an Indian Reservation owned by the Hualapai Indian Tribe. It is also home to the famous skybridge that juts out a number of feet over the canyon.

If you're brave enough, and pay the additional fee to traipse onto the bridge... they say the view and experience are worth it. All members of the Adair County entourage respectfully declined.

Leaving Green, Heading West: Grand Canyon West, AZ



2021-05-05 - Grand Canyon West, AZ - Photo by William Lamkin.
William writes, "For a fee you can walk out onto the skywalk. It is a glass bottom walkway that literally hangs over the edge of the Grand Canyon, Did I mention it has a glass bottom?

I was going to go (by myself I might add) but they do not allow cameras, phones, or anything that may be dropped, and that kind of defeated my purpose.

Would you be willing to go?"

Robert writes, "This is the same bull we got pics of earlier in the day on the trip to the Grand Canyon. The only difference was he had made it to the other side of the road, and his new location provided a wider view of the landscape and setting sun."
