Hualapai Tribe offers shutdown alternative to Grand Canyon
Posted: Friday, October 4, 2013
Grand Canyon National Park
is closed due to the shutdown of the federal government but the Associated Press notes that the
of Arizona offers an alternative.
The tribe operates the popular
Grand Canyon Skywalk
tourist attraction on the west rim of the canyon. That might be the closest visitors can get without renting a helicopter, the AP said.
The Skywalk sees about 370,000 visitors a year.
