My H1 is grey and not 90px with white text.

Hey Everyone! I followed everything in this video and everything seems to mirror all the Syntax, except my H1. It's grey and not while like I have styled in my CSS. I'm sure there is something I am missing.

<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>Lake Tahoe</title> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/style.css"> </head> <body> <header id="top" class="main-header"> <span>Journey through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span> <h1>Lake Tahoe, California</h1> </header> <div class="primary-content"> <p> 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. </p> <a href="#">Find out more</a> <h2>Check out all the Wildlife</h2> <p> 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 <a href="#">mink</a>, <a href="#">bears</a>, and <a href="#">Bald eagles</a>. </p> <a href="#">See the Wildlife</a> </div>

  <h3>From Tents to Resorts</h3>
    Lake Tahoe is full of wonderful places to stay. You have the ability to sleep in the outdoors in a tent, or relax like a king at a five star resort. Here are our top three resorts:
    <li><a href="#">Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">South Lake Tahoe Resorts</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Tahoe Ski Resort Lodging</a></li>
  <h3>Pack Accordingly</h3>
    One of most important things when it comes to traveling through the great outdoors is packing accordingly. Here are a few tips:
    <li>Bring layers of clothing</li>
    <li>Pack sunscreen</li>
    <li>Carry extra water just in case</li>
    <li>Pack light</li>

    <footer id="main-footer">
        <p>All rights reserved to the state of <a href="#">California</a>.</p>
        <a href="#top">Back to top &raquo;</a>

</body> </html>

Looks like you are missing a semi colon on the end of one of your h1 statements.

    font-size: 90px;
    color: white;
