The two RV Gypsies

at Grand Canyon West

and the Skywalk

First, the two RV Gypsies checked into the campground. Below are photos of the RV of the two RV Gypsies at the KOA campground - and the view from the front window.

Each side of the RV was set very tight to the bushes.

The only road the two RV Gypsies could take to the Skywalk, was a 19 mile very bumpy, dirt road. They were in their toad, not the RV.

Grand Canyon West is privately owned and operated by the Hualapai Tribe and requires the purchase of a tour package for entry. The Hualapai, meaning People of the Tall Pines are native people of the Southwest. All Grand Canyon West tour packages include a convenient Hop-On-Hop-Off shuttle system that continuously operates, giving the freedom for passengers to create their own experiences, and choose the sights to see and how much time spent at each one.

The two RV Gypsies at Eagle Point in the Grand Canyon.

This area is called Eagle Point because it looks like an Eagle in the cliffs

The unique U-shaped design provides an unprecedented and exhilarating view of the Canyon, including the 4,000 foot drop to the Canyon floor.

Personal belongings, including cameras are not allowed on the Skywalk bridge. To protect from dropping any items into the canyon or onto the glass, everyone must store all items in the free lockers. Photos of the Skywalk may be taken from the side with personal cameras, but not while actually on the Skywalk.

Professional photos on the bridge are available for purchase afterwards. Children must be able to walk on their own on the glass bridge. A Legacy package must be purchased to access Grand Canyon West and the Skywalk. So this, plus the bus trip to the Skywalk, is not a cheap affair. But the two RV Gypsies thought it was worth the experience.
