Day 5 - Penny Pines - mile 48.9

Sunny and clear.  Hiked to Pioneer Mail picnic area and tanked up on water.  Long dry stretch ahead.  Looked over at the Colorado desert most of the day.  Lots of yucca in bloom.  Dropped into Chariot Canyon and grabbed a nice spot just short of the main camping area.  We watched many hikers come in and soon were joined by Bolts and Jason.  Very windy in the canyon and Jason's tent was flattened with him inside when I awoke. 
I'm having the time of my life!
