In Albuquerque for the Week

Heidi, the kids and I flew into Albuquerque, New Mexico last Saturday afternoon for a week of vacation with Pete and his family. We rented a spacious house up on the base of Sandia Mountain that is serving as a nice base for our various day trips.

Besides having fun with everyone, my biggest goal for this trip is to take a bunch of footage on the new PV-GS250 and make a cool movie. Going pretty well so far, each day I've been working on organizing the footage and getting it edited in Final Cut Express 2. I bought Final Cut Express a year ago and haven't used it yet. It's pretty powerful, a huge step up from iMovie (although more complex to figure out). I am tempted to upgrade to the HD version.

Everything is on the video, but since that's not accessibles these are some of the trip highlights:

Other than a brief trip to Arizona as a small child I've never spent time in the southwest. Pretty cool place.
