Showers above Telluride

We are in the small mountain town of Telluride, Colorado, for a few weeks. This afternoon I biked down the valley a mile or so and sketched for a few hours. As I worked, the sky clouded, and the mountains above the town got quite a bit of rain, although most of it evaporated before it got down to where I was. Looking out into the beauty of distant rain is really special, and this feeling is what I tried to capture in this sketch.
