AP Photos: Wallenda's trek across Niagara Falls
Saturday - 6/16/2012, 2:11am EDT
NIAGARA FALLS, Ontario (AP) - With thousands of fans riveted on his every step, daredevil Nik Wallenda walks 1,800 feet on a tightrope spanning across the mist-fogged Niagara Falls.
The crowds watched as he prepared on the U.S. side of the roaring falls, made his cautious decline toward the wettest portion of wire and then up toward the Canadian side.
The seventh-generation member of the famed Flying Wallendas took steady, measured steps amid the rushing mist over the falls as an estimated crowd of 125,000 people on the Canadian side and 4,000 on the American side watched. Along the way, he calmly prayed aloud.
Here is a photo gallery of Wallenda's journey.
