This was supposed to be a trip to Peak 2110, but daylight seemed to be fading fast so I turned it into a wander. Didn't know at the time, but I walked right over 1976, hence the name.

When I decided I wasn't going to make my plans, I headed up and over the nearest peaks and down to a wash that heads towards the trailhead. Lichen and granite aplenty. Payed a visit to the petroglyphs. Not long after that, I ended up at a 15-20ft waterfall, sans the water. Climbed, or scooted rather, down and took a few pictures and continued through the wash.

Loving these White Tank trips. Seeing the larger peaks I've been scoping out on Google Earth in person stirred up anticipation.
