Which is the most popular Grand Canyon View? Why, from the Skywalk of course. This is not just a mere viewpoint but a real architectural & engineering marvel. What goes into making such a precise horseshoe-shaped cantilever bridge that stands proudly at an elevation of 4,770 ft? Calculating surrounding red limestone thresholds, which could stand up to 16,000 pounds of pressure, how far from the canyon rim should the structure extend, and resistance to high winds notoriously found in the Canyon, are just a few of the factors which went into its construction. Know all this and more in this short, visually and informatively appealing video.
We couldn’t help but throw this one into the mix. Check out this promotional video for the Grand Canyon Visitor Center. Includes clips from the IMAX movie and some footage within the center. Sorry, a little self promotion here!

Earlier this year, a near-fall at the Grand Canyon caught on video is a shocking reminder of safety procedures. Now, these are the type of videos that we don’t want to see. At least 64 deaths have been recorded at the Grand Canyon since it was established 200 years ago. Please be safe when videoing your Grand Canyon experience.
