I don't know what I am doing wrong.

<!DOCTYPE html>

      <span class="title">Journey Through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
      <h1>Lake Tahoe, California</h1>
    <div class="primary-content t-border">

There is a bug in the first task. It asks you to 'Give the paragraph element on line 14 the class intro' but passes if you give the paragraph element on line 20 the class - which you have done. There is no span to select in the paragraph on line 20 which is the cause of your error.

Update: I solved it by switching font-weight and font-style in the css, putting the latter on top and the former on bottom. This was dumb.
