Bordermarkers 521 - 530
In the swamp of Pihkva Lake.
Due to the high water in summer 2017 I couldn't reach border marker 521
Border marker 522
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...
Border marker 523
No path or trace here. Only mosquitos, horseflies and other iritating insects.
Border marker 524
It goes on in the swamp again.
Border marker 525
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.
Border marker 526
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.
Border marker 527
The Russian marker is not visable from here. It's behind the bushes where there is a small open strip.
Border marker 528
The Russian marker is not visable from here. It's behind the bushes I guess. .
Border marker 529
A 90 degrees angle, now on both sides swamp again.
Border marker 530
Still in the swamp. Close to the small farm Mihkli, south of Podmotsa.
