King of the Wire set to hit new heights

Self-proclaimed “King of the Wire,” Nik Wallenda is setting his sights on a new daring height – and this time he won’t be wearing a safety harness.

The tight rope walker who crossed Niagara Falls on just a 2-inch-thick cable last year, announced on Monday that he’ll walk across the Grand Canyon on June 23.

At 1,500 feet above the Colorado River — an altitude even higher than the top of the Empire State Building — the sky-high stroll will be Wallenda’s highest walk ever.

“It’s just another one in the bucket list,” Wallenda said on the “Today” show. “This is a dream of mine, as was Niagara Falls. It’s just the next chapter in my book, if you will.”

      The core ethical value that I think is demosntrated in the book Seedfolk is respect. I think respect is demosntrated because throughout the book, the reader is constantly introduced to characters that come from different lives and are of different racial backgrounds. In the book, other characters may judge one another by there skin color, age, or condition, but sooner or later the characters gain respect for others and lose their prejudice behavior.

      Hi, I googled beennigr camera classes Billings, MT and your previous class showed up. So I am emailing to inquire about if you might have another class coming up or if you are up for some private hire/tutoring!??!I’m desperate! I think I love photography, but as soon as I try and take a photo I get incredibly discouraged and walk away pouting. I don’t want to be the girl that forever uses her fancy DSLR camera in auto mode. I’d love any help!Thanks so much. Happy Holidays!-Sarah Barkie
