Description: A snow-covered, triple-peaked mountain stands in the distance to the right beyond a low ridge. A brown, rocky cliff stands at the left edge behind a conifer forest, with two or three tall trees dominating the space between the cliff and the mountain. In the foreground on the right is an inlet or river with forests on both banks in the distance; the nearer left bank is flat, covered with debris, low bushes, and small boulders.
