Grand Canyon Skywalk

I was going to complain about the outrageousness of charging $75 for that skywalk. For things like that, you're supposed to go for volume by making things affordable for more people. In fact, I was going to write a letter to the Hualapai about how we were thinking of a Grand Canyon trip this summer (I've never been), but the outrageous prices made a Black Hills tour more likely.

But I looked it up, as good bloggers should, and found that the price for the Grand Canyon West Entrance Spirit Package is $49.95 while the skywalk itself is $25. And that includes
... photo opportunities with members of the Hualapai tribe (in full dress) as well as access to the Indian Village and Hualapai Market. The village features examples of the houses and lives of several tribes in the area. Performances by the tribe members are scheduled throughout the day. As if that was not enough, your package also includes access to the Hualapai Ranch western town. There you will find the Wagon Wheel wagon ride, cowboy demonstrations, and a scheduled western town show. Round out the trip with your choice of the Western town cowboy cookout or the Hualapai Buffet (all-you-can-eat).
All you can eat.

So it sounds like an okay price for a day filled with western fun and all-you-can-eat buffets. Still a bit on the pricey side considering we'd have to get all the way to Las Vegas, but not so outrageous to warrant a complaint letter.
