    Scattered around the pueblos of the Hotel Santa Fe guests discover numerous icons which link together to make 4 separate trails, each representing aspects of desert life.

    Along the "Trail of Artefacts" guests discover a Saguaro cactus encased in a huge glass structure. The arms of the cactus are decorated with brightly coloured flowers but the shadows they cast are of human beings!!!

    and there is even a grounded flying saucer as in Roswell, New Mexico!.

    There is also a very brightly coloured reminder of the dangers of life in the desert
    [​IMG]
    and the wrecks of old cars abandoned along Route 66.

    The "Trail of Water"
    [​IMG]
    examines the importance of water in desert life. Beginning high on the tallest pueblo and cascading downwards. Guests can follow its journey as it fills streams and fountains

    The “Trail of Monuments is symbolised by a bird (why?)
    [​IMG]
    and is supposed to be reminiscent of Monument Valley, a Navajo Tribal Park in Utah. (It pays to have a good imagination here!!)

    Finally on the “Trail of Legends” symbolised by the White Bison
    [​IMG]
    a volcano (again – why??)
    [​IMG]
    and a golden building (representing the Gold Rush)
    [​IMG]
    remind guests of the legends of the Wild West.

    There are more details (in French) on this site: http://membres.lycos.fr/disneylandparisguide/hotel_hsf_desc.php
