AdventureTokens™

AdventureTokens are markers on the map that indicate cool places to visit such as epic lookouts, iconic rivers and lakes, interesting historic places or weird and wacky landmarks. They can be used to plan your routes with interesting places to visit along the way, plus they offer the social aspect of Claiming AdventureTokens where you visit the AdventureToken, take a photo to prove you were there, then submit the photo to claim the AdventureToken and add it to your AdventureToken count.
