Bordermarkers 187 - 202
Second and last border hike along the Hungarian-Ukrainian border. I was here after my morning hike close to Barabas.
It looks if I was only noticed by deer, but you never know.

I hiked from Beregdaroc (North) to the border crossing in Beregsurány (South).
Due to the numbering of the border markers, I describe it in the opposite way.

This was the end of the hike, from here I returned to the car in Beregdorac.
I approached the border crossing from the fields and meadows but I turned back here to avoid a confrontation at the border crossing. Although I informed the Border Police, I was not sure if they were aware of my presence here.
The pair of border markers in front of the crossing road must be 187.

The creek which can be considered as the border, ends here in a drain pipe. On top of it a small border sign.

On oth sides of the creek you will find the border markers. Also there are bushes to avoid easy border crossing. The Hungarian side of the border is used as agricultural fields, not clear what happens on the other side. Maybe there is a buffer between the border and the accessable part of the country.

Every angle here is covered by a pair of border markers.

This desolated area is the territory of deer and roe deer. You will find their traces everywhere.

Here the creek ends.

Border marker 193 with antlers
A big sigs in the middle which indicates the border.
Here I found a pair of antlers of a fallow deer. They were big and heavy and wouldn't fit into my luggeage so I left them here. It's quite rare to find a pair instead of one single antler.

The border makes a 90 degrees angle here. The small tower has nothing to do with border protection I guess. It's a place for hunters from where they can shoot their victims.

The border touches the edge of woods.

On both sides of the border there is are small woods. The territory of deer. I could spot some on the border strip.

Between the fields and some bushes. Notice the small whire pole on the background which is placed exactly on the border.

This one is close to the small road near Beregdaroc where I parked my car to start the hike. The border makes a 45 degrees angle here. On the background you can already see the pair 202.

The end of this hike. During my hike from here to the approach of the border crossing at Beregsurány I met no one.
After this hike I visited Vylok, a bit more to the south-east.
