creating a second box shadow declaration

I need to create a second box-shadow declaration that is inside the image. I'm not quite sure what I'm doing wrong :(

style.css
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
.main-heading {
  text-shadow: 0 0 5px #be7b31;
}

.title  {
  text-shadow: 1px 3px 0 #e59740;
}

.main-header  {
  box-shadow: 0 2px 15px #aaa,
  inset 0 0 60px 5px firebrick;
}
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
  </head>
  <body> 
    <header id="top" class="main-header">
      <span class="title">Journey Through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
      <h1 class="main-heading">Lake Tahoe, California</h1>
    </header>

        <div class="primary-content">
            <p class="intro">
                Lake Tahoe is one of the most breathtaking attractions located in California. It's home to a number of ski resorts, summer outdoor recreation, and tourist attractions. Snow and skiing are a significant part of the area's reputation.
            </p>
            <a class="callout" href="#more">Find out more</a>
        </div><!-- End .primary-content -->

        <footer class="main-footer">
            <p>All rights reserved to the state of <a href="#">California</a>.</p>
            <a href="#top">Back to top &raquo;</a>
        </footer>
  </body>
</html>

Try reordering the box-shadows in the rule you specified so the inset one comes first. I'm not 100% sure if that's the problem but give it a shot.

All they wanted was the two box-shadow codes one right after the other on the same line separated with a comma. Go figure :)
