As many of you know, the Ramada Express is my favorite rally of the year, largely (pardon the pun) because of the Grand Canyon venue. Imagine my surprise to have a non-racing friend send me information about a new Hualapai Nation tourist attraction, the Skywalk.

Like all good netizens, I scoped it out to see if this was an urban legend by going to Snopes.com.

This is a legit story, so the question changes to: can we race on it?!

It might as well be an urban ledgend - as it's not built yet, and spring of 2006 is going to go right past with little work on it.

When Christine and I did the Grand Canyon TSD a couple months ago - we saw the site that they started buiding it on. There are some steel forms and some scattered equipment - but no skywalk. No building either. I really think they spent tons on marketing - and now they're living off of that for a little while. No one said "it's not built yet" until we got out there. Yet pictures of it are on EVERYTHING!

It looks cool - and would be wide enough if you could somehow clear out the giftshop. :p
