Sunday is National Scavenger Hunt Day, and if you are looking to celebrate, one idea is to organize a scavenger hunt all about Utah County.
It's simple — give the group a list of photos they must take, and the winner is the individual or group that has the most photos in the end. It's a great way to get to know your community and have fun at the same time.
Here are ten photos you can add to your Utah County scavenger hunt list.

A photo with a government building

A photo taken at a university campus
Utah County is home to two great universities and you can have your hunters capture a photo of a location at BYU or UVU's campus. If you want to make it a little easier, specify that it can be of any school.
A photo with a live farm animal
Many places throughout Utah County have more of a small-town feel and are perfect places to capture a photo of livestock. If you can't think of anywhere else to see a horse or a cow, head up to Thanksgiving Point and see Farm Country.
A photo with a fountain
There are many beautiful fountains in Utah County, one of the newest of which is at the Provo City Center Temple.
A photo at a local park
Utah County has no shortage of parks, and you can have your team take a photo swinging on a swing, going down a slide or teetering on a teeter totter. Here are ten of our favorite local parks.
- Discovery Park in Pleasant Grove

A photo of your team crossing a street
You'll have to be careful to obey all laws with this one, but you can make it fun. Recreate the famous Beatles photo or cross an iconic street like Center Street in Provo.
A photo doing whatever a road sign says
A fun photo that you can add to your list is to have the group take a photo following the instructions on a street sign -- dip, yield, stop or maybe a great street sign.
Photos of things in each color of the rainbow
A fun idea is to ask for a photo of something red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. They could be houses, cars, flowers, signs, anything, so long as you capture every color.
