The reservation of the Hualapai, or “People of the Tall Pines,” includes nearly a million acres of land along the Colorado River and Grand Canyon. Visitors can now take in the grandeur of Arizona’s most famous landmark, the Grand Canyon, at the Hualapai Tribe’s Skywalk. The glass-bottomed, horseshoe-shaped overpass is suspended 4,000 feet above the western end of the canyon. An added bonus is that as you connect with this natural wonder, you’ll be helping support the Hualapai Nation and preserve its culture.
Viewing the Grand Canyon from above is one thing, but seeing it from different elevation perspectives is entirely another. To do that, hike or ride a sure-footed mule down the South Rim's Bright Angel Trail. It's the quickest route to Phantom Ranch at the Canyon's bottom, where you can grab a well-deserved lemonade and spend the night in its rustic cabins and lodge.
