/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
.main-content
{
  width : 75%;
}
.title{
  font-size : 26px;
}
h2 {
  font-size : 53px;
}
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>

  <head>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">

    <div class="container">

        <span class="title">Journey through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
        <h1>Lake Tahoe, California</h1>
      </header>
      <div class="main-content">
        <p>
          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 href="#">Find out more</a>
        <h2>Check out all the Wildlife</h2>
        <p>
          As spawning season approaches, the fish acquire a humpback and protuberant jaw. After spawning, they die and their carcasses provide a feast for gatherings of mink, bears, and Bald eagles.
        </p>
        <a href="#">See the Wildlife</a>
      </div>
    </div>

It looks like you have everything correct, but maybe there's some issues with your spacing? This is what I did for this challenge:

.main-content {
  width: 75%;
}

.title {
  font-size: 26px;
}

h2 {
  font-size: 53px;
}

Let me know if you need anymore help and best wishes in your learning adventures.
