I've entered the snippet of code and have double checked the syntax. I can't see what I've done incorrectly?

I've entered this:

main-content {

background-color: lightsteelblue; }

It tells me to make sure I have the right color, which I do and have spelled correctly. Not sure if I'm overlooking something here or if it's just a bug?

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
    <header class="main-header">
      <span>Journey through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
      <h1 class="main-heading">Lake Tahoe, California</h1>
      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 href="#">Find out more</a>
    <div id="main-content">
      <h2>Check out all the Wildlife</h2>
        As spawning season approaches, the fish acquire a humpback and protuberant jaw. After spawning, they die and their carcasses provide a feast for gatherings of mink, bears, and Bald eagles.
      <a href="#">See the Wildlife</a>
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
.main-header {
  background-color: orange; 

.main-heading {
    font-size: 72px;

#main-content {
  background-color: lightsteelblue;

In your css file, the closing brace BEFORE your #main-content needs to be flipped around.

Sorry for the delay, but thank you Jeremy! I had realized that not long after posting this. Silly me.
