At 1,500 ft above the Little Colorado River Gorge in northeastern Arizona, Nik Wallenda wowed the world. As a professional tightrope walker, Nik walked across 2-inch-think steel rope to cross the dry river bed on the Navajo Nation, near the Grand Canyon.
Nik battled ‘unpredictable’ winds of up to 30 mph, and had to steady the rope as he made his journey, which was broadcast by the Discovery Channel.
‘It took every bit of me to stay focused that entire time. My arms are aching like you wouldn’t believe
‘It was a dream to come true. This is what my family has done for 200 years, so its part of my legacy’
Nik is 7th generation aerial performer and last year he crossed Niagra Falls, earning him his 7th Guinness World Record. This is clearly in his blood. The Legend of The Wild Geese has taught us that courage is often on the path to achieving your dreams. It took him only 22 minutes to cross the river, displaying an unprecedented amount of courage.
