Bruce Munro's Field of Light in Paso Robles has been on our radar for years. The small canyon is absolutely beautiful, and it’s hard not to get caught up by the amazing site. The 15-acre walk-through experience is made from almost 60000 stemmed spheres running on solar power. Sensorio’s second installation called, “Light Towers” made from over 17000 wine bottles is also nice. While the name is a bit on the nose, the columns make for a fun area with enough light to take some photos. #fieldoflightWe really enjoyed our time visiting the Festival of Light. While it’s not for everyone, It’s a unique experience that we recommend if you’re looking for something visually appealing that’ll leave an impression on you.
