The second box shadow's horizontal offset needs to be 0. (I thought the second zero after inset already did that).

style.css
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
.main-header {
  box-shadow: 0 2px 15px #aaa,
    box-shadow: inset 0 0 60px 5px firebrick;

}
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
  </head>
  <body> 
    <header id="top" class="main-header">
      <span class="title">Journey Through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
      <h1 class="main-heading">Lake Tahoe, California</h1>
    </header>

        <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.

Hi David,

You got it mostly right. Just don't put box-shadow: twice. One time with the comma in-between the two sets is how you do it.

Hope this helps.
