Presents are opened and turkey is cooking ... what to do next? Took a drive in hopes that this tag was still there ... and it was! Another great Christmas present! Sadly, did not see the putty tat.

Ape decided to take a hike by the lake. He encountered an interesting creature. Not pet friendly. Have fun but be aware.

I happen to be at the park today and thought I heard some ape noises from nearby. I did a little bit of investigating and was able to snag the tag. Thanks for the fun!

Woohoo! Spotted the ape and found the golden ticket in the wilds beyond the park. A big shoutout to one of my GC buddies, Under the Side, for being on the lookout and alerting me. (Doing the happy dance now. 🤪☃🎄❄)

Sagle, ID, US

What better place to find a golden ticket than at Round Lake State Park, where the wild raspberries taste like wild raspberries. Once there you will need to find the big ol' cedar tree. Behind the tree under a rock, you will find the prized golden ticket. Congratulations, Willy Wonka would be proud of you!

NOTE: Cell service is spotty to non-existent in spots.

2.5 hours from my house and the day after the storm. I did not think I had a chance, but had to try, considering the days are dwindling down to zero really fast and I had no idea if another would even pop up again in this area. Thank you for placing the tag‼️

How appropriate that there is a Storm coming, and the APE stopped at the Stormville Rest Stop. The APE is taking a rest and reading important information about Historic NY. Read, look and feel up high.

Mountain Loop Hwy, Jordan Road-Canyon Creek, WA, US

This ape had always heard it called a fish ladder, not a fishway. As it turned out, he never found a ladder, or a way, let alone a fish - he was hoping for some dinner. (Shhh . . .don’t embarrass him - the ladder is across the highway from where he is.) Can you help him out?

91st St NE, Marysville, WA, US

Welcome to Doleshel Park, an old Christmas tree farm. Allen the Ape came here for a tree, but hadn’t been filled in on its current status. As he waits for transport to a better farm, he is seeking advice from the salmon. It is a short walk to Allen’s location overlooking the creek - if it's wet out, be prepared for slippery mud for a short distance, before the bridge. Access this park from 67th Ave NE. There is no access from the nearby school.

The Ape decided to continue his journey by visiting Cochrane Memorial Park, he enjoyed the trails, water, and birds. He accidentally dropped a tag as he was walking along that fell behind the sign talking about the use of reclaimed water in the park.

Someone stopped in at the Langley Events Centre on the hunt for Giants, unfortunately their ice capades have been put on hold for the foreseeable future. While climbing to higher heights to get a better lay of the land a Golden Ticket fell out of their grasp and settled nearby to be found. No climbing is required to get to this ticket but a boost may be needed for those with a short reach. Fortunately for you the ape's antics were captured on security camera to help narrow down where to search.

Cute little garden on Bickford Ave. Follow the path you'll see 2 places to sit. Look behind the bench for pile of rocks.

Taconic State Parkway, Lagrangeville, NY, US

Wooohoooo! I had almost given up hope of grabbing one of these! I checked the map last night and realized one was only an hour and forty minutes away! After conferring with some snagging buddies, it was decided best to wait until morning when there was less chance of black ice. However 5am came around and I couldn’t sleep anymore! So off I went. Arrived at GZ safely and saw no telltale boot prints to reveal another searcher. So I stomped right through the snow (all the way up to my knees - definitely got some inside the winter boots lol), closed my eyes, said a quick prayer, reached up, AND SNAGGED THE TAG!!

Thank you to the hiders and those running these contests. 😁

The Ape was recently spotted at Taste of NY. They liked the variety of NY based items for sale. The APE really enjoyed reading the information on the kiosk and if you reach high and feel around, you too may spot the APE. The APE is not in the store- but please go in and look at all the great stuff for sale.

YESSS! I feel like Charlie when he got his golden ticket. I have been waiting patiently for the opportunity to grab one of these. Well, it worked out because I forgot that I ran out of milk for breakfast so I skipped it in lieu of expedience. That paid off. So, with ice skates under my wheels, I skidded my way to the local coffee place and grabbed a victory breakfast sandwich and slid off to the job. One of the best parts about the number for logging this ticket is the code, it is so befitting of me. Thanks to those who placed. To bad this golden ticket doesn't earn me access to a magical factory.

SE Petrovitsky Rd, Maple Valley, WA, US

This ape decided this would be a good area to catch a ride into Seattle, or some other location, so he found a place to snuggle in and wait for someone to come pick him up!

HINT: Behind base of pole, very near a geocache if you haven't found it already!!!

I wanted to use the general area one showing the parking for the published photo rather than the Google photo above. Can you handle switching that out, as I can't seem to do it.

This ape was helping a young man with his soccer workout and really tired himself out, so he left to find a nearby nap location.

HINT: Right side of stump around back (small step up to reach the area). Partially covered with bark.

Willoughby Rd, West Vancouver, BC, CA

With the end of both the game and the year fast approaching, this ape decided to head here to reflect on all of the amazing times they have had participating in Snag the Tag. From hunting elusive Mammoths, to hiding Secret Dossiers scooped up by Special Agents, to placing Golden Tickets for our inner Charlie’s to gleefully discover, it has been a distinctly exciting year. The ape reflected upon all of the hiders, the finders, the volunteers and the organizers who have made this game wildly popular during these unpredictable times and felt the need to give thanks to all of them. When the ape was finished sitting, reflecting and enjoying the view of the city’s lights, he left a ticket stub tucked away underneath as a reminder to the finder of how thankful we can all be for Snag The Tag. Enjoy the view as you don’t need a ticket to do that! Good luck and happy holidays! PS, it may help to bring a TOTT to retrieve the ticket stub from the tight space. 😁🐒

Zira loves to shop but needs a little break. Out back she finds a nice quiet spot by a tree.
