Bordermarkers 521 - 530
In the swamp of Pihkva Lake.
Due to the high water in summer 2017 I couldn't reach border marker 521

I walked back from BM 531 which is good accessable from the small farm Mihkli, south of Podmotsa. It was a long and heavy walk through the swamp. My boots were just high enough to avoid wet feet.
Notice that the Russian shield is missing. I would mean I'm not the first one here...

No path or trace here. Only mosquitos, horseflies and other iritating insects.

It goes on in the swamp again.

Some angles in the border here.
On the Russian side the swamp ends for a short distance. There is a small Russian area which is only accessable by boat via the Pihkva Lake or via Popovitsa in Estonia.

Some woods on the Russian side. There even seems to be a path or a small strip. It is said that this Russian exclave has only one habitant, a Russian farmer with his sheep.
On the Estonian side there was only swamp.

The Russian marker is not visable from here. It's behind the bushes where there is a small open strip.

The Russian marker is not visable from here. It's behind the bushes I guess. .
