Not sure what I am doing wrong

My code is below I am not sure why it is asking me to define my horizontal value at 0 when it clearly is.

.main-header{box-shadow: 0 2px 15px #aaa, box-shadow: inset 0 0 60px 5px firebrick;}

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
.main-heading {text-shadow: 0 0 5px #be7b31}
.title {text-shadow: 1px 3px 0 #e59740}
.main-header{box-shadow: 0 2px 15px #aaa, box-shadow: inset 0 0 60px 5px firebrick;}
<!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 -->

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

Try to type "px" after each "0"

It looks like your first two rules for .main-heading and .title are missing the semi-colon at the end of the rule before the closing bracket.

Also, when you use more than one shadow, the rules can be separated by a comma alone - you don't have to specify box-shadow again.

.main-heading {text-shadow: 0 0 5px #be7b31;}
.title {text-shadow: 1px 3px 0 #e59740;}
.main-header {box-shadow: 0 2px 15px #aaa, inset 0 0 60px 5px firebrick;}
