13. First thing you do...Take her to the desert museaum.

Most poeople, like myself, come here, see arid land, figure nothing really lives here. The first time I came here, that's what I thought. Boy was I surprised at the extent of the echo system in the Sonora desert.

Next, Get her comfortable with the fact that she now lives in a world with a lot more interaction with the natural elements than she is used to.

When we got here from California, we had not experienced much in the way of wildlife beyond racoons. In the year we have been here we have seen scorpions, Turantulas, Coyotees, wildcats, The biggist jackrabbitts you have ever seen, and a whole host of birds and bugs. I find the whole experience facinating as does my wife.

I think the important point is to teach her that they are not your enemy, they are part of the process of life.
