You have an extra closing bracket. class="main-heading should go inside of your h1 tag. Like this:

<h1 class="main-heading">Lake Tahoe, California</h1>

Note: You are also missing the ending brace after your css.

.main-header {
  background-color: orange;

You see how the header tag is assigning a class to it. Do the same thing to the h1 element and give it the name main-heading. Also, in the span, don't put a space after the = and remove the extra t in tittle.
