Marshall Miller was cited last month for illegally BASE jumping in Zion National Park. He and two companions BASE jumped from the top of the Great White Throne, an iconic white Navajo sandstone monolith on March 28. The group was also cited for violating a raptor nesting enclosure and camping out of bounds. Miller has since pled guilty to taking the two illegal jumps.
