Dec. 17, 2013 Journalists and employees, wearing slippers to protect the glass floor, attend a press visit to the “Step into the Void” installation at the Aiguille du Midi mountain peak above Chamonix, in the French Alps. The Chamonix Skywalk is a five-sided glass structure installed on the top terrace of the Aiguille du Midi, where visitors can step out from the terrace, giving the visitors the impression of standing in the void. The glass room will open to the public Saturday. Robert Pratta/Reuters Buy Photo
