Weekend Trip Suggestions

Hello All,
I'm looking for suggestions on a peak or two for this weekend. I'd prefer the Western Adks as I'm coming from Rochester. I've got the majority of my gear here at school but will need to pick up maps. I will likely be hiking alone or with one other person. Hope to find a lean-to but have tent and truck bed if neccessary.
Thanks!

Seward's

You might want to consider the Seward's. The trailhead is on Corey's road off Route 3 between Tupper Lake and Saranac Lake. There are 4 lean-to's in the area so you should have a good chance of getting into one of them. Then you have the option of hiking 1 to 4 peaks depending on conditions, time, and ability.

I don't know about the western peaks, but there has been a fair amount of snow in other high peaks (read here. I would be prepared for winter conditions.
