Bargerveen

The Bargerveen Nature Reserve, where these photos were taken yesterday, is part of the Bourtanger Moor-Bargerveen International Nature Park and is located on both sides of the border between the Netherlands and Germany. The sparsely populated landscape consists of large peat areas, heather, and small lakes. Bargerveen, on the Dutch side, has a size of 21 km² (8.1 sq mi).
Instead of following one of the marked walking trails we made our own route, and passed several large fields of veenpluis (´cottongrass´ in English), a plant that grows so well on peat bogs.
