Oh my, not sure if you would find me walking on it. That's just too eerie or spooky for me.

I'm sure this is posted somewhere here. Grand Canyon Skywalk USA ; https://www.ask.com/wiki/Grand_Canyon_Skywalk

I looked back and no one has posted it. I think I could handle the Grand Canyon Bridge, but not London's Tower Bridge...yeesh.

That bridge in Japan looks really scary, Darlene. I did wonder whether it was a foreshortening effect in the photos, given that Japan tends to be rather sensible about bridge-building. I found a photo taken from a side-on view:

Slightly less scary. Still wouldn't want to drive over it.

Simon: Love the towers. Very elegant.
