Kate and her friend Ana first spy Jack during their morning run along a trail that meanders through their neighborhood. Of course, Jack has noticed Kate, as well. When I wrote those scenes, I had the trail that runs along the Pittman Wash in mind. It’s several miles long and runs through many neighborhoods in Hederson, Nevada. Here are a few pictures of the actual trail, as well as the “famous” kiosk Kate mentions in a certain scene where she learns something surprising about Jack.
This is a view down the trail. You can see the wash on the left. It just a dry riverbed.
Here’s a clearer picture of the wash, itself. It’s dry now, but that isn’t always the case. During a rainstorm, it can turn into a raging river in minutes.
This is one of the panels on the kiosk at the trail’s entrance. I know it may be hard to believe, but if it looks like rain, that drowning warning is no joke.
This is the kiosk panel that talks about all the flora and fauna to be found along the wash. I know it’s hard to see, so the next picture is a close-up of the lower right-hand corner.
Poisonous, or at least really horrifying, all of them. Poor Jack.
