On this morning, I visited the Glacier Skywalk outside of Jasper.

   
   

The Glacier Walkway is a glass-floored observation platform 918 feet (280 metres) over spectacular glacier-formed valleys and rushing waterfalls.

   
   
There was some rain before I arrived with continuing mist.  The glass floors were difficult to film through.  Occasionally the walkway was squeegeed allowing a better view.

   
   

Once on the Glacier Skywalk, you can see beautiful scenery of distant glaciers, rivers, and waterfalls.

     
     


 Besides looking through the glass and seeing how high off the ground you are, the glass was a bit slippery.  Everyone had a reason to walk slow, scared or not.

     
     

I guess you have to go there to experience the thrill.

     
     

 

 

 

 

 
     
     

 

 
     
     

 

 
     
     
   
     
     
   
     
     
   
     
     

 

 
     
     
   
     
     
   
     
     
   
     
     
   
     
     
   
     
     
   
     
     
What kind of emergency could you have out here?  
     
     
   
     
     

Apparently there is no weight restriction on who can walk on the glass.

 
     
     
   
     
     

The engineering required to accomplish this is amazing.

 
     
     

Although there are plenty cracks to be seen in the concrete,  none were found in the glass.

 
     
     
The Glacier Skywalk opened on May 1st, 2014.  The bolts still look new.
