KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) - A northwestern Arizona tribe is preparing to welcome the 1-millionth visitor to its popular glass bridge that hangs over the Grand Canyon.

The Grand Canyon Skywalk is the Hualapai (WAHL’-uh-peye) Tribe’s signature tourist attraction on the reservation west of Grand Canyon National Park.

The Kingman Daily Miner (http://bit.ly/1NrpjDF ) reports that the bridge has seen a major uptick in attendance this year, pushing visitation to the seven-figure milestone.

The tribe’s Grand Canyon Resort Corporation oversees tourism operations there. Corporation spokesman David Leibowitz says nearly 120,000 more people have visited the bridge in 2015 than in 2014.

Leibowitz says the tribe expects the millionth visitor sometime this week. That person will receive free gifts and pictures as part of the celebration.
