Hunan, China - Visitors gingerly walk across China's first high-altitude glass suspension bridge that opened last week at the Shiniuzhai National Geological Park in central Hunan province.

The 300-meter (984 foot) bridge has a glass bottom and spans a canyon 180 meters (591 feet) deep. Originally wooden, the designers changed it to transparent glass panels.
