Crossing Niagara Falls
Nik Wallenda walked across Niagara Falls on a high wire crossing from New York to Ontario on June 15, 2012, a stunt that has not been allowed for over 100 years. In February, 2012, Nick Wallenda received official approval of the New York state and Ontario provincial governments and their respective parks department to do the stunt. The plan is to cross the Niagara River and its 200 feet (61 m) deep gorge from the American side at Goat Island or at the smaller Luna Island and make his way across the river to land at the Canadian side near the site of Table Rock. The American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls would be behind him and to his right while the Canadian Falls will be on his immediate left and behind.
