    A gondola down to the confluence of the Colorado and Little Colorado? One could say that that's the participation ribbon equivalent in experiential tourism, even if it's not quite on par with Floyd Dominy's idiotic idea to dam the canyon and turn it into another Lake Powell.

    Then again most skiers don't make their way to the top of mountains on foot/skis over the shoulder.

    So doing this will wreck every view of the GC? I thought it was bigger then that. Only reason to do something is for money.

    So you're not buying the help-the-less-able-enjoy-the-canyon-better argument?
