HootnHoller almost never was.
When I was little, I dreamed of becoming like Jeff Corwin, exploring the world, discovering animals... just sitting in the wilderness, alone, watching how animals behaved in nature. I would lose myself for hours in the woods, catching frogs and snakes, playing in the creek and exploring with my dogs.
I would often sit for hours in the rabbit hutch while my mother did yard work, just watching or holding my rabbit. Almost every photo of my childhood featured some kind of animal in it.
