CSS CSS Basics (2014) Enhancing the Design With CSS Media Queries

Stuck on Step 2 of CSS Basics: Media Queries Challenge

It won't accept my code and I don't understand why.

I even tried copy and pasting the code from here and still get the same issue.


It says I did not specify the correct font size for H1. It's driving me crazy, I don't understand what I'm doing wrong.

Can someone help please?

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

@media (max-width:  1020px)  {
   .main-header  {
     background-color:  tomato;
      color:  white;

  @media (max-width: 768px)  {
    .title {
      font-size: 1.4rem;
    .h1 {
      font-size: 5rem;
<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
    <header id="top" class="main-header">
      <span class="title">Journey Through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
      <h1 class="main-heading">Lake Tahoe, California</h1>

        <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.
            <a class="callout" href="#more">Find out more</a>
        </div><!-- End .primary-content -->

Remove the "." from your CSS for h1, Your h1 element has a class named "main-heading" not "h1" :)

Oh my gosh - so simple!

Thank you :)
