after we got back on the road, we pull up to what looks like just an airport. Turns out it was the airport on the Hualipai Indian Reservation which is also the area that you have to catch a bus (after you pay for your tickets of course) to go to the SkyWalk. http://www.nps.gov/grca/planyourvisit/skywalk.htm
Dad asked who of us wanted to go out on the SkyWalk? I had said originally no way was I doing that. No way, no how. Well, I thought about it and I decided, what the heck! When would I have another opportunity to do something so amazing? Its not like I go to the Grand Canyon every day. Or even every year or every few years for that matter. What a great experience to be able to share with my family. I am so glad I did it! So everyone said they wanted to do it. Dad went and got the tickets, we all hopped on the bus and it took us the 4 miles to 'Eagle Point'. If you look at this picture closely you will see why its called Eagle Point. We all had a great time. It is such an amazing sight to see.
After we did the SkyWalk we hopped back on the bus and drove through the other spot on the West side that they take you to. We didn't get out as we were all pretty tired and wanted to get back on the road and get some lunch and head home. All in all it was a 10 hour road trip!
We got back home at about 8pm that night, but the memories will last a lifetime.
'...yeah, the yellow caution sign there is letting you know you should slow down...you know the one that said caution: watch the hell out...' Sean to Dad after dad took a turn at about 80 mph when he should have been going 35!
