Grand Canyon “Sky Walk”

No passado dia 28 de Março foi inaugurada uma grande obra de engenharia, implantada e construída num local “sagrado” como é o Grand Canyon. Foi baptizada de Sky Walk, ou seja, caminho do céu. 

É uma estrutura de vidro, em forma de ferradura, colocada a cerca de 1200 metros de altura em pleno Grand Canyon e estende-se 21 metros para fora do penhasco.

Podem ali pousar 71 Boeing 747, soprar ventos de 161 km/h e pode até ocorrer um tremor de terra num raio de 80 quilómetros, que a ponte de vidro não cede. São de facto impressionantes estes números assim como será realmente deslumbrante toda a magnífica vista da envolvente deste local, que se poderá ver a partir do Sky Walk.

Mas a obra não foi implantada pacificamente, apesar de ter sido feita com a permissão da tribo Hualapai que ali vive, alguns membros discordam e assumem que esta obra é uma profanação de solo sagrado. Os ambientalistas estão também preocupados com a poluição no local, que se prevê ter cerca de 500.000 visitantes neste ano.
