A winding road enters the scene from the base of the canvas in the center. It curves to the right before weaving off into the distance to the left. A large, dark-colored mesa rises from the right side of the work, its hills sloping down towards the left. Several trees dot the landscape in the foreground. The sky is largely filled with clouds, with just a sliver of blue visible along the upper edge of the work.
