This mural pays homage to The American Discovery Trail, indicating where the trail runs along the Cedar Valley Nature Trail through Cedar Rapids. The trail itself is depicted with the yellow lines, describing how it moves across the United States with Iowa being in the center. Moving from left to right, the mural cycles from night to day to night again, describing a change in time as people move across the path. Local Iowan plants and wildlife are illustrated throughout the mural, such as mallard ducks, coneflowers, grasses, and goldfinches.
