The area that the rustlers rest up at, and the children catch up to them, is the same area as the Pilot opening scene with the horses. See more »


Whereas most places in the world lightning comes before thunder, apparently at Gold Hill, which can be seen in the opening scene, thunder comes just before the associated lightning. Furthermore, a few far away lightning strikes (indicated by flashes that were not as bright) had simultaneous thunder or thunder before the strike, rather than having thunder come seconds later like in the real world.
