Thousands for Grand Canyon Skywalk opening
Thousands of tourists turned out for the public opening of the Hualapai Tribe's Grand Canyon Skywalk.

Some people camped overnight to be the first to walk over the $40 million structure. "I'm still shaking," Pamela Wamser of Wisconsin told The Arizona Republic. "I have goose bumps."

By noon, 700 people had paid $75 in fees to enter the Skywalk, on the western edge of the Grand Canyon. They came by car, chartered bus, helicopter and planes. The crush of tourists forced the tribe to scramble to accommodate everyone, The Republic said.
