Walenda

High wire artist Nik Wallenda
walked across Niagara Falls,
navigating
through thick spray, strong
winds, and close encounters
with birds.

Beginning
on the U. S. side,
emerging
through a cloud of mist
on the Canadian side.

Near the end,
kneeling
on one knee,
blowing
a kiss to the crowd.

His next feat—
a walk over the Grand Canyon.


Nik Walenda transverse Niagara Falls on two inch wire cable covering a distance of 1,800 feet at a height of about 180 feet.
