Grand Canyon Skywalk

When I was researching about my road trip to the West Coast of USA in 2014, I found the Grand Canyon Skywalk quite interesting and thought we should at least try it when we were there!

We booked an overnight stay with Hualapai Ranch together with the Grand Canyon Skywalk – http://www.grandcanyonwest.com/hualapai-ranch.html

We took a shuttle bus which dropped us off at “Eagle Point”, and made our way to queue for the Skywalk. They did not allow us to bring any personal belongings onto the Skywalk. So we had to pay US$80 to the ‘official photographer’ attached to us who gave us all our photos and a few souvenir shots in an USB drive.

We checked into our lodge at the Hualapai Ranch, which looked like a little cowboy town. There were meal vouchers included in this package, hence, we needed to go do the “Dance Hall” to eat our dinner.

A word of caution – there’s no TV inside the lodge. Hence, you may want to find something to do – read a book, get ready your mobile phone/iPad or just hit the bed early!
