It may sound poetical in french: “le désir de détruire” but this desire to destroy precious things like bordermarkers has a new victim. On my 6-days hike along the Ariège-borderridge from bm418 to bm425 I found on august 22th 2013 bm420bis broken in two. That must have been done since my last visit in september 2011
Bm420bis is a new bordermarker, placed in 1997. A Spanish official had discovered that the presumed borderline in this part was wrong. The watershed is actually to the north of the basin in question. To confirm this change in demarcation, this brand new bordermarker was placed. See this webpage for more information.
