Grand Canyon Skywalk

This topic should have been included in the previous article of “Towering Tour of US & Canada 2012”. However, its exceptional features deserve a place of special mention & description here.

The Grand Canyon Skywalk, a transparent glass horseshoe-shaped cantilever bridge and tourist attraction in Arizona near the Colorado River on the edge of a side canyon in the Grand Canyon West area of the main canyon, the Skywalk has been described as an engineering first.

  • Juts out about 70 feet into the canyon, 4000 ft above the Colorado River, twice as high as any skyscraper

  • Will accommodate 120 people comfortably (The question is how comfortable would YOU be?)

  • Built with more than a million pounds of steel beams and includes dampeners that minimize the structure’s vibration

  • Designed to hold 72 millions pounds, it can withstand an 8.0 magnitude earthquake 50 miles away, and winds in excess of 100 mph.

  • Has a glass bottom and sides . . . four inches thick. For those weak of hearts, they can walk on the two opaque sides of the glass bridge

Modern technology has brought this aged-old wonder of the world to the modern era. The avenues of sight-seeing by trail-hiking is still there and twin-engine plane or helicopter rides to get more vintage views and even cruising or rafting on the Colorado River below.

Construction of the Skywalk began in March 2004 – and was opened to the public on 28 March 2007 with 120 people allowed on the platform at any one time.

Visitors will have to pay $25 (around £13) to use the gangway, on top of the fee for entering the national park. Grand Canyon West is privately owned and operated by the Hualapai Tribe and requires the purchase of a permit and Legacy tour package for entry. No cameras & personal belongings are allowed

Believe it or not . . .

The Illuminati is Real

Source: Pravda-ru

Illuminati – a Bavarian secret society founded in 1776, organized like the Freemasons . . . people claiming to possess special enlightenment or knowledge of something : some mysterious standard known only to the illuminati of the organization.

The Conspiracy for world takeover is as old as man himself. The Illuminati, in recent history, has twice tried to control the world — in Napoleon’s day and during World War I.

Only about 5,000 people in the entire world know the true purpose of the Illuminati and its conspiracy to rule the earth. Their plan was written down in code, as a fictional novel, in 1957.

In the mid-1950’s Philippe Rothschild ordered one of his mistresses, Ayn Rand, an established authoress and philosopher, to undertake the writing of this code to the witches of the world. This novel, Atlas Shrugged, was never intended to be a best seller, although it turned out to be one.

The main characters of “Atlas Shrugged” are code names for individuals or companies. The code is as follows:

Dagny Taggart — Ayn Rand

Dagny’s brother — The combined Railroad System

Ellis Wyatt — David Rockefeller

Hank Rearden — U.S. Steel, Bethlehem Steel

Francisco D’Anconia — Combined Copper Mines

Galt, D’Anconia, and the Pirate –Rothschild Tribunal

The Tribunal in the book went around convincing certain major corporation presidents of their philosophy and plan, getting them to bankrupt their own businesses. The owners of these companies would then vanish and leave with either Galt or D’Anconia to a retreat area in the Colorado mountain regions. “Colorado” is the code name for the “Bermuda Triangle“, the place where the key figures of the Illuminati will be when the world crashes.

Looking at the present world situations, the Illuminati maybe just

around the corner waiting to pounce yet again.
