Sensationalist Nik Wellenda is scheduled to cross the Little Colorado River on Navajo Nation Parks and Recreation land but the tightrope walk is not over Grand Canyon or in the park. This is a National Park not an Amusement Park.
None the less, this is an amazing feat to attempt. You wouldn’t catch me walking on a wire 1500 feet over a river.
But Nik is a pro and comes from seven generations of Great Wallendas. Nik’s Mission: “To inspire people around the world to follow their dreams and never give up,”
The Navajo Nation with the help of NBC and the Discovery Channel worked diligently to ready for this big event. Yet only the first 600 spectators will see this daring walk along with local Navajo entertainers on a jumbotron.
However the event will air live on Sunday, June 23, on the Discovery Channel.
Just setting the record straight as many think this is happening in Grand Canyon National Park.
