Day 324 - Nurturing Nature: We Planted A Mondell Pine Tree right on Historic Route 66 at Locomotive Park in Kingman, Arizona, USA

Day 324 (21 Nov 2023) - Kingman, Arizona, USA


DAY 324 (21 NOV 2023) – A few days ago, Mr Bud had made arrangements with the Kingman Office of Tourism for a tree-planting activity.

He contacted Mr Josh Noble, the Tourism Services Manager via email and managed to book a date for the planned activity.

Today morning, Mr Bud, Madam Eva and I headed to the Locomotive Park for the event, hosted by the City of Kingman Parks Department and Office of Tourism. There were many people in attendance, including Mr Josh, staff from the Kingman Visitor Center and a few reporters.

Together, we all planted a huge Mondell Pine Tree at a designated spot near the Kingman Visitor Center, right on Route 66 at Locomotive Park.

I am very thankful to Mr Bud and Madam Eva for their initiative, and to everyone who participated in this event.

It is a huge achievement for Malaysia and as a biker and traveller, I am very happy to have planted a tree right on the historic Route 66. I travelled on this famous highway the past few weeks and will continue my journey on this highway as I head to California next.

Constructed in 1926, Route 66 is one the original highways in the US. It runs from Chicago, Illinois through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico and Arizona before terminating in Santa Monica, Los Angeles, California - covering a total of 2,448 miles (3, 940 km). The route in Arizona remains the longest stretch of the original Route 66 in the U.S.
