WHILE YOU’RE HERE:   The resort partnered with the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum in 2006 to create the ½ mile Window Walk Nature Trail, modeled after the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum experience, where over 200 signs identify the plants and animals unique to the Sonoran Desert. Stop to admire the 80-foot natural waterfall, or perhaps take some time to yourself in the Butterfly Garden, designed by Tucson Botanical Gardens.
