I'm from Melbourne, Florida and I attend UCF. My grandparents live in the town of Magdalena, or village they say. It is a run down looking place if you ask me. I happend to be visiting them at the moment and plan to go up to the mines with in the next few days. This will be my second time up to the mines and I have to say it is rather cool to see the old history of the old town of Kelly. The Kelly Mine is no more, but there is some cool old run down buildings to check out and a couple mines you can peak into. I loved checking this place out. I plan to video tape some of the area when I go back up there.

One of the friendlist places I have ever been. Was there off and on for 3 years and never met anyone I didn't like. Beautiful town.

Ryan, if you can get to the top of the pass above Kelly the view is spectacular. Also several old mines up high but difficult to access. But be careful, the old diggings are just that,,old,, and can be dangerous. It's a rough road, a 4x4 vehicle, 4X4 wheeler ATV or even better, a horse. Beautiful area! And worth it.
And,,, We haven't been to Magdalena for almost a year now but there was a cafe then on the main hwy. that had some really great grub, and ice cream.
We live not far from Magdalena and love the area, and need to get back soon since the weather is cooling.
