Because the Nisqually hike is so different from others I've been on, I'm just posting photos from that area, rather than include Tolmie too.
This whole area used to be farmland, protected from the encroachment of salt water from Puget Sound by a series of dikes. Those have been removed and the land is slowly returning to its natural state. However, the creators of the wildlife refuge decided to leave the barns as a reminder of the area's history.
Here's the link to last year's blog post about both Tolmie and Nisqually:
