(KPLR) -  Millions of Americans are expected to tune in to watch a tight rope walker attempt to cross the Grand Canyon. Daredevil Nik Wallenda already crossed Niagra Falls, now the man whose family performs at Circus Flora, plans to walk across the Little Colorado River Gorge Sunday.

He will be suspended 1,500 feet above the river, will not be wearing a tether and there won't be a safety net.  Despite all of this Wallenda says he is confident he will make it across.
