Watson Adventures Best Photos of 2016Looking for something to celebrate before 2016 finally leaves us forever? Need something from this year to look back on fondly? Here’s just the thing: an album of photos from you, the clever, hilarious hunters who made this the biggest year ever for scavenger hunts!

Whether on corporate team building scavenger hunts or public scavenger hunts at the museum or in your favorite neighborhood, you’re often tasked with completing photo challenges. You might have to take a team photo with just your heads showing, or acting scared of a live animal. They’re a lot of fun, and some teams truly get creative with them. Here are 10 of our favorite scavenger hunt photo challenges from 2016, from nine states across the U.S.

1. Frozen in mid-air with a body of water visible in the background

We see what you did there. The best part? The actual body of water depicted in that mural is about 20 feet behind the person taking the photo. Grab’n’ Go Scavenger Hunt, Hoboken, New Jersey

2. With another team, arranged in order by height
