Slow and Steady… the Wallendas

In July of 1970, Karl Wallenda walked across the Tallulah Gorge on a tight-rope, smack dab in the middle of  God’s Country.

My entire family was there and watched in amazement as he crept across the gorge stopping twice to stand on his head… .yes, he stood on his head on a tight rope over the Tallulah Gorge.

I was just a child and we observed the walk from a distance that quite frankly we didn’t see anything… but we were there!

Tonight, his great-grandson will attempt to walk a tight-rope over Niagara Falls.  Ironically, Sam and Donna are on their way there for vacation, I wish they could be there to see the show.

I hope Nik has the same good fortune as his predecessor!
