Jump Shots: Can You Name These 8 Places from Our Scavenger Hunts?

In the Air Around the Country

Discovering little-known secrets. Solving devious murder mysteries. Setting out on safari at zoos and aquariums. You can do all those things and more when you join our in-person scavenger hunts and virtual games. And something else you’ll often do? Complete memorable photo challenges.

You and your group must put your heads together and take creative photos based on different prompts. You might use forced perspective to look like giants, or find a person in uniform and treat them with great respect. Photo challenges are a great way to get flex your teamwork muscles while making keepsakes of your adventure.

One all-time favorite photo challenge: take a photo of your group in mid-air, often in front of something that can identify where your scavenger hunt is taking place. Here are eight jumping photos from hunters just like you. Can you place where in the United States each group took their photo?
