While taking a guided walk in the desert near Talieson West in Scottsdale, it became obvious to me that Mother Earth is taking good care of this part of her seemingly hostile and arid landscape. Every organism and plant is dependent on each other for it's very existance. For example, the falling leaves of the brittle bush nourishes the soil and if that plant were eradicated, most of the surrounding desert would not be able to thrive.
