A year after he crossed Niagara Falls, Nik Wallenda walked across the Colorado River Gorge in Northern Arizona Sunday night.  

He did so on a tightrope suspended 15 hundred feet above the gorge.  The only thing that separated him from a fatal fall was a two inch thick cable.  

The 34-year old member of the renowned "Flying Wallendas" family walked 14-hundred feet across the gorge which is near the Grand Canyon.  

In Sunday's walk, he did away with his safety harness. 

Wallenda is already planning his next stunt after making a high-wire walk across the Colorado River Gorge in Northern Arizona.  He tells NBC's "Today" show he'd like to navigate the New York City skyline.
