Woke up this morning to find that a golden ticket had landed fairly close to home. My trip to the Pacific Northwest this summer was obviously canceled, but very much looking forward to hopefully making it back to Washington this coming summer 2021.

The APE was exploring an abandoned nuclear power plant and left behind a golden ticket. If you get there first, you will find it behind next to a post under some rocks (see second picture). Good luck!


cron publish 1 month 1 week ago 073 - The Pay It Forward Ape

Poplar Way, Alderwood, Lynnwood, WA, US

This ape came to Heritage Park to pay forward some Snag the Tag goodness. We found our Spot the Ape tag in this exact spot last year, so we thought it would be fun for one of this year’s apes to visit the same place for a new finder.

There’s some cool history in the park and there’s even an Adventure Lab series to complete here.

The mama hen at the coords has three small chicks around her. If you look closely, she seems to be working on hatching an ape as well!


cron publish 1 month 1 week ago 072 - This Ape Got Hammered

1st Ave, Central Business District, Seattle, WA, US

This ape was so sad that this year’s Going Ape mega was cancelled, it decided to drown its sorrows and go get hammered. Being a tag it couldn’t hit the bars - you know, no hands and no mouth plus a global pandemic shutting everything down - so it did the next best thing and came to get hammered by Seattle’s iconic Hammering Man.

Unfortunately, the ape not only got hammered...it got stepped on by the big fella. Look underfoot.

This Ape was a little confused by looking in the mirror trying to figure out which road he should use. What a great place to find and to explore; with great views by Lake Coeur d'Alene. Once there take a good look in the mirror and figure which road you choice, you will find your prized golden ticket nestled between rocks.


cron publish 1 month 1 week ago 086 - Valley Overlook

The Ape was hoping to attend an event but it got cancelled, so he decided to stop at the overlook at night. What a sight.

Look at guardrail and under a rock.

This ape was looking for some banana smoothies but was sadly disappointed. He's too early. Can you take him home and give him some bananas?


cron publish 1 month 1 week ago 026 - APE Resting

The APE was spotted at a roadside rest area where you can enjoy the beautiful view. The APE especially liked reading the information at the kiosk and if you reach high and feel around, you too may reach the APE.

Looks like I wasn’t the o my one that made the trek to get this lonely tag! Sadly I was not the one to find it, but I did get to check out the view.


TheTrailAwaits check_circle 1 month 1 week ago 042 - Lost in the woods

I saw this when it first came out, but, i thought it was too far away. Last night after 5 days in the wild it decided it needed to be found. I left Spanway around 7:30 am and headed out. The roads were a bit tricky to follow, but, eventually I made it to GZ. The tag was an easy find.

I'm crying. Missed getting to ground zero by maybe 10 minutes. Stopped to talk to the cachers that did find it. Oh well plan B is to find a Christmas tree. Did a little CITO while hunting.

This tag is hidden in a parking ride under the closest Ape I could find. Don't let him sit down. If you do, you will not get the tag!

I saw this come out this morning but didn't think it would still be here by the time I had to go to my VA appointment. I stopped by to check and found this hungry little guy hiding out. Sometimes you're just in the right place at the right time.

I was so set on this; the closest I have seen to Sandpoint. Missed that one by 26 minutes.


cron publish 1 month 2 weeks ago 044 - Appetizing ape

FL-817, Sunrise, FL, US

This ape has a huge appetite so he's hanging out where he can get his fill. Since he's a messy ape he is hiding so he doesn't embarrass himself

I saw this tag publish yesterday while at work. I had parental duties after work so was not able to go then. I know this place well. Ironically, I hid a tag here once. After dropping my daughter off at school, I made the drive. I couldn’t believe this tag lasted so long and I’m so happy I was lucky enough to snag it. Thank you!

Wow it is a brisk morning for a walk in the park. I had to wait for the car to warm up, to get the frost off. Man a few minutes feels like a long time when you are trying to get to a tag.

FINALLY a tag was placed within Seattle! I am shocked I was able to find it this late after publishing. I rushed down on this cold clear early morning to make the find. Thank you!

Cheshiahud Lake Union Loop, North Queen Anne, Seattle, WA, US

This APE wanted to visit Geocaching HQ but found it is closed to visitors. Instead, he decided to hang out by the Fremont bridge and enjoy the views. Good luck finders!

This little ape was hoping to see a rodeo but one was not to be found. He was sad and threw his ticket to the side. Perhaps you can retrieve it?

35th Ave S, SeaTac, WA, US

Good way to get your heart rate up in the morning is to race for an ape tag while you are supposed to be at the laptop centre. I was 20 minutes away and figured it would be gone. I kept refreshing my map driving as quickly as my Jeep would take me. I thought for sure somebody had already claimed this one but the note was simply telling us all that it was still there!! This is the 3rd tag I've tried to snag... 3rd time is the charm. I absolutely love the pit so this one was very fitting for me. Thank you so much to the hider for placing one here. Today started out as a crapfest and this made it when 100% better!! And the view is the icing on the ape tag!!


Qaz&Kids description 1 month 2 weeks ago 064 - Ape at the Pit

Well it's still there:) Accidentally thought this was a ninja hiding out.


cron publish 1 month 2 weeks ago 042 - Lost in the woods

Hoodsport, WA, US

An ape went searching for a nice view, and got a bit turned around. He dropped a ticket stub at the top of the road. It's getting cold up there, and the weather won't be getting better for months. Hint: In a large stump just off the road.

About the approach: Most cars should be able to get within a quarter mile. There are some drainage ditches crossing the road in the last tenth of a mile that may give low vehicles trouble. The foliage gets closer the higher you go, but there's a suitable area to turn around at the top.

This Ape is watching over the Kent Valley, just resting under the resting apparatus. I image the parking lot gate gets closed at dusk.


cron publish 1 month 2 weeks ago 038 - Ape finding his way to the amusement park

N Pope Rd, Athol, ID, US

On his ventures this ape saw the tall roller coasters and wanted to go for a climb. As I had a hard time finding this spot the ape is having a hard time finding his way so he decided to rest under a little tree using some leaves and rocks for nesting materials.


cron publish 1 month 2 weeks ago 085 - Hillview "Jungle"

S Fillmore St, Kennewick, WA, US

As the Ape was passing through Kennewick, he came upon what looked like a jungle. Since he was tired, he was tired, he decided to take a nap. So be careful, you may see him under the bench.


cron publish 1 month 2 weeks ago 098 - APE at the Old Alton / Goatman Bridge

Old Alton Rd, Denton, TX, US

This APE tag (somewhat of a legend himself) wanted to pay a visit to the local legend of the Old Alton / Goatman Bridge near Denton TX. (https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/goatmans-bridge)

Although this tag isn't on the old truss bridge itself, it is firmly wedged into a guardrail on the other side of the street from parking (check the lower rung / opening of the guardrail). Be careful as there can be a lot of traffic zipping along this stretch of road!

Please don't plan to park on the road itself, or the bridge -- use the parking coordinates provided to park in the parking lot just NE of the hiding spot on the guardrail.

Early morning search and find venture to a spot only a couple of minutes away from home. Nice and dark and tried to be sneaky to avoid a visit from the security guys. Luckily was there and gone hopefully before they noticed. Thanks for the fun.


cron publish 1 month 2 weeks ago 082 - Sheltering from the storm

S College Dr, Bellingham, WA, US

The Ape journeyed north but was turned away at the border. One the way back south found this shelter from the coming storm.

Hint: parking lot side of building, base of tall window behind stone with a rock on top.


cron publish 1 month 2 weeks ago 123 - George Can't Travel Either

Veradale, Spokane Valley, WA, US

George the ape had great expectations of world travel in 2020. Unfortunately, like many others this year with the borders closed, all his plans were canceled. Wanting a taste of international cuisine he stopped here to pick up some dinner. When he stood up to leave this tag fell out of his pocket. If you can locate the tag it's yours. As always, please be respectful of the area. This tag is outside and available at all times.

An ape named Gary stopped to rest in this spot and noticed this marker. Garry, Chief of the Spokanes. He left this tag here for you to find. Look behind the thing in front. Please be respectful while in this area. The tag is accessible at all times.

What better place to find a golden ticket than on Rathdrum Mountain, where the huckleberries taste like huckleberries. Once there you will need to find the ol' tree stand. Wrapped in leaves and tucked between the north leg and the tree, you will find the prized golden ticket. Congratulations, Willy Wonka would be proud of you!

This ape was parked too long at this spot. Quick! It's time has almost expired! The tag is placed in downtown Santa Rosa at a Meter-made piece of artwork. Be careful about parking nearby so you don't get a parking ticket. Look behind the red spray painted meter in the 3rd photo.
