Wallenda Grand Canyon
Aerialist Nik Wallenda kisses the ground after walking a 2-inch-thick steel cable that took him a quarter mile over the Little Colorado River Gorge in northeastern Arizona on Sunday, June 23, 2013. The daredevil successfully traversed the tightrope strung 1,500 feet above the chasm near the Grand Canyon in just more than 22 minutes, pausing and crouching twice as winds whipped around him and the cable swayed.
