FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Tourists heading to the Grand Canyon Skywalk have driven through Nigel Turner’s ranch for years. Up until this past weekend, they haven’t had to pay a fee to cross his stretch of land.

The decision by Turner to set up a checkpoint and start charging $20 per person has infuriated the Hualapai Tribe, which operates the Skywalk, and some tourists. They’ve been protesting this week, saying the fee is unethical and akin to highway robbery.
