The Escalante Ranch historically was named after the Escalante-Dominguez expedition that explored the area in 1776. The Franciscan missionaries Fray Francisco Antanasio Dominguez and Fray Silvestre Velez de Escalante, some of the earliest explorers, who were searching for an overland route between the older settlements of New Mexico to the new ones on the coast of California, actually camped and crossed the green river at the ranch location.
The Escalante Ranch is truly one of the most remarkable ranches located in one of the most amazing areas in the world.
