Overnight advice - ADK Loj ->Lake Colden->Algonquin->ADK Loj

Hi everyone,
I figured I'd ask for any input on a planned trip next weekend (11/12/10) to the High Peaks region. Sorry I don't have the trail names in front of me right now, but I think you'll get the picture. Here's the plan as it stands now:

1.) meet at the ADK Loj @ noon or as early as possible (coming from Boston so it will take a while).
2.) hike 5 miles to one of the Lake Colden lean tos.
3.) stay the night at lean to
4.) next morning, hike up to Algonquin and continue down the other side
5.) back to ADK Loj
6.) stay the night in Lake Placid

We are all experienced in winter hiking/camping, but I'm hoping someone can give me an idea of conditions right now in the area, what to expect from that route, and is this plan reasonable?

My biggest concern is getting to the lean-to before dark.
