Texas painting commission sketch

Here is my first GOOD sketch for the commission. I ruined the first three trying to put the Grand Canyon in the background. I now have much more respect for people who paint the Grand Canyon!
The roadway is too dark but I like the curve to it. I may just make it a curve where rockiness ends and bushiness begins, instead of a road.
The cactus was out of my head, as I had no photos but I have been out taking some photos of rocks and cacti for the next sketch.
The next one should also be the correct painting size proportions.
There was a tiny sunset in back of the yuccas and I have played it up to pick up the cactus flower color.
