WEFOUNDNorth of Lost


So spake th' Apostate Angel, though in pain, [ 125 ]
Vaunting aloud, but rackt with deep despare :
And him thus answer'd soon his bold Compeer.

Frederick North, 2nd Earl of Guilford , KG , PC (13 April 1732 – 5 August 1792), more often known by his courtesy title , Lord North , which he used from 1752 until 1790, was Prime Minister of Great Britain from 1770 to 1782. He led Great Britain through most of the American War of Independence . He also held a number of other cabinet posts, including Home Secretary and Chancellor of the Exchequer .

North's reputation among historians has swung back and forth. It reached its nadir in the late nineteenth century when he was depicted as a creature of the king and an incompetent who lost the American colonies. In the early twentieth century a revisionism emphasized his strengths in administering the Treasury, handling the House of Commons, and in defending the Church of England. Herbert Butterfield , however, argued that his indolence was a barrier to efficient crisis management; he neglected his role in supervising the entire war effort. [1]

Lord North was born in London on 13 April 1732, at the family house at Albemarle Street , just off Piccadilly , [2] though he spent much of his youth at Wroxton Abbey in Oxfordshire . North's strong physical resemblance to George III suggested to contemporaries that Prince Frederick might have been North's real father (and North the King's brother), a theory compatible with the Prince's reputation but supported by little real evidence. [3] His father, the first Earl, was at the time Lord of the Bedchamber to Prince Frederick, who stood as godfather to the infant.

Hike by WTA Correspondents : Mike Morrison

One of the best ways to access the heart of Chuckanut Mountain is via the North Lost Lake Trail. You can enjoy hikes of varying lengths from several different trailheads, but because the web of trails here is complex, a map of the area is a must. It makes navigating easier, allowing you to create loops with other trails and ensuring you can find your way back. Because of its large parking lot, start at the North Chuckanut Mountain Trailhead for this hike, where you’ll connect with the Interurban Trail, then the Hemlock and North Lost Lake Trails.

From the trailhead, climb moderately, looking out for a sign on your right for North Lost Lake Trail. Most of the route is an old forest road transforming into a trail, so the grade is never terribly steep. The sounds of the road below fade away as you round the west side of the mountains. Look for a riot of ferns and conifer trees along the way, until the trail levels off into a relatively flat section just before reaching the quiet lake.
