i saw the entire album thats amazing.
Last October there was an early snow and all the passes were closed by Mid-October. That's not unusual.
If you go on a weekend, most of the trails have other traffic, however skip Pookeepsie if you are alone. It's got difficult sections and little other traffic. Black Bear (one way) and return via Imogene. Engineers is easy (although there are soem rough sections at the beginning portion of 550).
California and Cinnamon are easy as well. Have a good spare tire and take some snacks and water, decent clothing, go slow and you'll be fine.
