360° Video from the Grand Canyon
From the rim of the Grand Canyon at Guano Point on the Hualapi Nation's land. The steel structure looming overhead was used to run a cable to the large cave on the far side of the canyon (look for it using the zoom tool in the upper left). The operation mined bat guano from the cave until an F-16 running the canyon well below the rim sliced through the cable at some point in the 1980's, at least that was the story that our guide told us. That's his white Hummer parked under the structure. If you get a chance to visit the Grand Canyon Skywalk, Guano Point is just a short hike away and offers a bit more rustic view.
