Video Proof That the Best Way to Experience the Grand Canyon is By Wingsuit
The Grand Canyon is a sight to see, whether you drive right up to the many lookout points, take a helicopter ride above the valleys, or explore the landmark by foot. There’s another option that some may overlook: wingsuit. After stumbling upon a video of five wingsuited flyers, it’s been decided: you absolutely cannot beat the view (or, probably, the adrenaline rush).
The flyers mainly stick near the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, plummeting around 28,000 feet in three minutes. Make sure and stick around until the parachutes are pulled out—the last few seconds fo floating just barely in-line with the horizon are stunning. Check it out above.
