          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.

          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.

I think the challenge is just picky about using a semi-colon at the end of the declaration block. According to MDN Syntax - CSS it is not required but best practice and should allow you to continue.

Thanks Dave, and as you said is not required in coding. If you see the previous syntax has passed without the semicolon, so I think is a problem to solve in the validation process. Anyway I put the semicolon and has passed. Thanks!

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */ .title { font-size: 26px; }

h2 { font-size: 53px; }

.main-content { width: 75%; }

That should work! plus easier to read! Hope this helps.
