Which way is east?

East from West

If you are ever lost in the woods, remember that the Pileated Woodpecker digs his home facing east, a Flying Squirrel's hole is usually facing east, a spiders web is usually facing south, the rings on a cut down tree most often show a greater growth on north and northeast sides, and the tops of evergreen trees usually bend to the east. Oh yeah...the sun rises in the east and sets in the west.
