SARASOTA - Nik Wallenda is giving us a look at the possible site of his next high wire walk.

Wallenda tweeted a picture of the Grand Canyon Thursday, along with the message: "Hard day at work! Never give up."

You can see some cones and other equipment off to the side, so it appears the Sarasota-based daredevil is making his initial preparations for his high wire walk across the canyon, set for June 23rd.

NBC's Discovery Channel will be airing the high wire king's big walk.
