    Crazy Grand Canyon Photographer Leaps Across 8ft Gap

    Crazy Grand Canyon photographer leaps across 8ft gap......

    A foolhardy photographer takes snaps of a Grand Canyon sunset - after casually leaping between rock columns to reach a precarious perch 3,000ft up.

    The mystery daredevil, wearing flip-flops and clutching his camera gear along with a six pack of beer, seemed oblivious to the yawning chasm below him as he vaulted from rock to rock to reach his destination.

    This is unbelievable to me, but then I'm scared of heights, like his style with the flip-flops and the 6 pack of beer though. ;D

    He looks like he is campagining for a Darwin Award.
    All he has to do is miss once, and he will be a winner!

    I would have to assume he's carrying a six-pack of the Grian Belt Premium.

    ...The area shown is a popular photographic spot in the Grand Canyon, for the very reason demonstrated above:
    if a photographer frames his picture just right, he can make it appear that his subject is leaping across a yawning chasm...
