A political activist and economist, Neothink Society founder Mark Hamilton has established a successful career promoting Neothink teachings through more than 2 million manuscripts. Away from the society, Mark Hamilton enjoys supporting unique projects, such as the Grand Canyon Skywalk.

Located on the western rim of the Grand Canyon, the Skywalk was built on the Hualapai tribe’s Eagle Point. Its horseshoe-shaped bridge stands 4,000 feet above ground and includes glass flooring that extends 70 feet beyond the rim’s edge. The structure can withstand harsh conditions, such as extreme winters and forceful winds, and can hold more than 71 million pounds of weight.

Upon arrival, visitors are asked to store all personal belongings in a locker to avoid loss and prevent dropping items on the glass floor. For added safety, young children must have the ability to walk on their own to enter the bridge.

The attraction is accessible by road or air. The latter takes 45 minutes from Las Vegas, Nevada, and gives visitors the opportunity to view other sites, including Hoover Dam and Lake Mead, on their way to the Skywalk.
