Nik Wallenda tightrope walk over Niagara Falls

We were lucky enough to be at Niagara Falls to see Nik Wallenda do his tightrope walk over the falls on Friday 15 June 2012. It was a very special event, and lots of people came to watch it.

Here are some of the crowds that were near us:


We had been walking all day and wanted to sit down while we waited a few hours for the walk to start, so we found a spot at the top of a grassy hill in front of an inflatable ad which we could lean our backs against.


We were also sitting right under the spot where the lights shine out on to the waterfalls, and not far from Skylon tower, which is on the right in this picture.


Here’s my photo of looking upward at the rays of light. The squiggly lines are the moths that were flying around in the lights.


Now for the tightrope walk! Here are some photos that I took (click on them to see them bigger).
