In 2011, Ken Dunlap of Okemos had an idea. He would set out to visit every city, town, village and hamlet in the state of Michigan.

Three years and two cars later, he had completed his mission… well, almost.

But he’s got nearly 1,500 photos- one from each Michigan town- to show for his travels.

He tells us about his trips, and where the idea for the whole thing came from.
