Virtual Lake Loop Challenge 


Sponsored by Animal Care Centers


Thank you to all who submitted photos and posted on Facebook and Instagram. Your smiles made us smile and it was so fun to be part of all of your journeys. Below are our photo contest winners, but we loved each and every one of your snapshots and tried to capture as many as possible in our thank you video at the end! #KeepSmiling 

Most beautiful lake view while exercising


It probably won't come as a surprise that Bob Kays took this category home with this stunning image of a sunrise on Lake Hopatcong. After all of that paddling, we hope a massage at Tru Nature Yoga and Wellness comes in handy. Congrats! 

Best exercise photo with a pet

Who could resist those two faces? Congratulations to Sheri Salamanca and her daughter, Kaylee (along with their pup, Rexine!), who won a gift certificate for a facial from Tru Nature Yoga and Wellness! Sounds like a perfect excuse for a mother/daughter day (sorry, Rexine, you will have to stay home).

Most unique activity

Whether it was walking his cat, sharing clues to different lakes all over the area, or using nature to complete his workouts while gyms were closed, Bill Woolley always kept it interesting and original. Hoping for an equally unique dining experience with your prize of a $50 gift card to The Windlass!

Best costume

We never did get Walt to submit a photo in a tutu, but Susie and Erin Steward helped us out with that goal. Congratulations on winning a $50 gift card to Alice's and thanks for keeping things fun and colorful!

Best cameo

How do you paddle around the Statue of Liberty without ever dropping your kayak in New York-New Jersey Harbor? Come to Lake Hopatcong! Thanks for reminding us of this Lake Hopatcong oddity, Becky Rubenstein! After your 100 miles of biking, we hope you can make use of a 5-pack of classes from Tru Nature Yoga and Wellness to switch it up a little. Congrats!

Most fun team photo

We couldn't help but smile at this super fun team photo. Thanks for letting us all join in and laugh along with you. Congrats to Doug Palen for posting this gem and snagging a $50 gift card to Main Lake Market!

Best wildlife photo

We had to recognize this perfect moment captured by Jeremy Travers. It reminds us of one of the many reasons why taking care of our lake is so important.  Congratulations on winning a $50 gift card to Alice's

Thank you
