skidoo

Skidoo, California

Skidoo is a ghost town located in Death Valley National Park, California.

Skidoo was famous in the first decade of the 20th century when gold had been found in the area. Within a few years the town had been abandoned, however, and now no standing structures remain. Skidoo's desert location is sometimes still visited by ghost town aficionados.

The name Skidoo comes from the expression 23 skidoo, a slang expression of the time, for which various origins have been suggested.
