LAist doesn't usually care what's happening in our eastern neighbor Arizona, but we've got to admit we're curious about the new Grand Canyon West observation platform opening 375 miles away on March 28.

Those wacky Hualapai Nation folks have gone and constructed a glass "sky platform" that will allow visitors to stare a mile straight down into the heart of the Grand Canyon. This seems like the perfect attraction for LA's adrenaline junkie community, and we can't help but wonder when the first local base jumper will be arrested for leaping from this thing? Hope the Hualapai don't skimp on security.
