Skidoo is several miles of dirt road off the Wildrose Road,
but it is usually in good enough condition for most cars.
Check current conditions at the vistor's center. There is
really nothing left to see at the Skidoo townsite itself.
"Hooch" Simpson was supposedly hanged twice. First time by
a lynch mob, and then the hanging was reenacted a day or two
later when a reporter arrived to write up the story.
