Increasing font size of h2 element

Hi Guys

Not sure what I'm doing wrong here. Keep getting this message for some reason: Bummer! Make sure you're setting 'font-size' to 53 pixels.

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

.h2 {
  font-size: 53px;
<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
    <div class="container">
        <span class="title">Journey through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
        <h1>Lake Tahoe, California</h1>
      <div class="main-content">
          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.

Hi there,

You've pretty much got it - you just need to take the . out from before the h2 - you only need a dot for classes, and h2 is a tag, which doesn't require any special notation. That one would look like:

h2 {
  font-size: 53px;
