In Search of Dominguez & Escalante: Photographing the 1776 Spanish Expedition through the Southwest
Greg Mac Gregor and Siegfried Halus

On July 29, 1776, Franciscan friars Francisco Atanasio Dominguez and Silvestre Velez de Escalante embarked on an expedition to seek an overland route from Santa Fe, New Mexico to Monterey, California. Although the Spaniards did not reach their final destination, the expedition is widely regarded as one of the great explorations in western U.S. history for its documentation of the land and Native peoples in the Four Corners. The group—including cartographer Don Bernardo Miera y Pacheco, Ute-speaking guides and the alcade (mayor) of Zuni— circumnavigated 1800 miles of unchartered territory never before seen by Europeans, an arduous five month trip documented in Escalante’s journal, a widely read historical account of the exploration.
