Watck Nik Wallenda’s Tightrope Walk Across The Grand Canyon [Video]

Sure, the view is stunning, but I think that I will just buy the postcards!

Watch aerialist, Nik Wallenda cross the Grand Canyon on a tightrope.

Nik Wallenda is just one member of the world renowned Flying Wallendas, a family that has been performing on the high rise and tight rope for generations, but he can claim the distinction of being the first man to cross the Grand Canyon on a wire.

The event, filmed on June 23 for the Discovery Channel’s “Skywire Live” took a nerve wracking 22 minutes and 54 seconds.  The seventh generation Wallenda said his biggest challenge was the 48 mile an hour winds.

For Nik, the goal of being the first person to cross the Grand Canyon on a tightrope was a way to honor the Wallenda family legacy. Sunday’s walk, done without a harness or safety net, was something he first thought of as a teenager, after a visit to the Grand Canyon with his family. While on the wire, he described the view as “breathtaking.”
