I ended up only playing in Farmington today. Woke up late and did the math, and since the one Durango was actually 25 miles north of Durango not in Durango like I'd assume, it would have been 50 more miles out of the way, leaving me arriving here at 9-10pm.
I got my best MPG ever, since the day I bought this car nearing 3 years ago. I don't know why, but thought that was pretty cool. A full 34 MPG, best before that was 32.5 MPG. It came out of nowhere, on the drive from Farmington NM to Pueblo CO.
Tomorrow is still being decided, going to be another long day either way.

Farmington, NM- Lions Wilderness:Possibly in the top 10 for unique course I've ever played. The entire ground of the course is sandstone, it feels like one large rock. There are cliffs, unique rock formations, washes, etc. Must see pictures. There are some trees on the front 9, and easily twice as many on the back 9 which is much longer. They are only 15-20' tall at the most, which leaves the course lacking in technical shots. It will tear D/DX plastic apart, and things skip and roll a lot. One of the most fun and unusual courses ever. Back 9 features a few long tosses downhill over trees, and the last 2 holes on the sides of large sandstone hills. The front is insanely short and easy. It is also possibly the BEST marked course ever. There are dual tee signs, all still there, made of solid metal frames and featuring full color pictures of the hole with the basket circled, a map highlighting the current hole on EACH tee sign, the signs are color coded for short and long, easy to spot from every previous hole. Also the hidden baskets have flags in them to spot them easily. People should learn from that.

Glad you got to play Farmington! It's one of my favorites, simply because of the uniqueness of the setting. It is not a course for DX plastic - we saw some guys just finishing when we got there and they were using some Lightning discs that we so chewed up the looked like saw blades.
