IS THAT NORTH?



How do you know which way is North in the winter? The side with the ice. Not really; well I guess there is a hint of truth to it. In the woods the icy side is the side the shadow is on, but it could be a shadow of another tree so that doesn't work so well. Another thing, see the moss growing on both sides...I guess that blows that theory also.



The ice is the South on one tree and North on the other.

Maybe the best way to find North, is to wait until dark on a clear night and find the Pole Star.

I've often thought about this. Here, if it is winter, the wind is nearly always from the northwest. The colder it is, the more northwest it is. So that's how. If it is summer, you don't care if you ever return to civilization.
