Northern Arizona

Red Rock CrossingDeva Designs is based in beautiful Sedona, Arizona, where the high plateau of the Mogollon Rim slopes down on its way toward the Verde Valley. Within a few hours drive, you can visit ecosystems as different as alpine tundra on the San Francisco Peaks in Flagstaff, to the riparian corridors along Oak Creek in Oak Creek Canyon, to Sedona’s high desert of juniper and pinon pine. Here are some of Suzie & Bob’s favorite places.
