Trip delayed

I was supposed to hike Guadeloupe Peak and El Capitain this week. Unfortunately I strained the muscles in my back yesterday. Now I have put it off until this fall. Really sucks. I'm gonna have to stop my hiking for a while.

Placer Mountain, New Mexico - access?

For years, access to Placer Mountain (between Albuquerque and Santa Fe) was coordinated through the Santa Fe Botanical Garden. However, as of 2015, they have stopped leading hikes to that summit. My understanding was that this was the only legal way to that peak.

Narrows in Zion- permits etc

Please post a link if this question was asked before
I am going there in late May, want to do the entire Narrows one way and camp out one night. Are permits required to camp? are they hard to get? It seems like a very popular thing to do.
