OK, I was wrong in my assumption that the tightrope walker we saw at Niagara was Walenda, it was Jerry Cochrane. He performs this crazy tightrope walk from the Skylon Tower to the 53rd floor of the Hilton Hotel every evening at 7 PM. Now I know why there wasnít anything on the news about this, itís an every night occurrence.
I hope this guy has good Life Insurance.
BTW, I have to recommend the Skylon restaurant on the Canadian side for those who have future plans to visit Niagara Falls. The food at the buffet was excellent and the price included access to the observation deck which offers great views of the falls.
