You always hear about tips on getting "that shot" - get away from the crowds, go off the beaten path, etc etc.
These are all true; but sometimes 'getting away from the crowds' and 'going off the beaten path' is as simple as taking one step over the guardrail at the Hoover Dam. That's what happened here.
Keep your eyes open. Go with the flow. Nature has a curious sense of humour.
If a chipmunk keeps photo-bombing and 'ruining' your picture of the Hoover Dam; forget the dam and follow the chipmunk. The dam will be there tomorrow.
