I am completely stuck on this challenge. If anyone knows of what could possibly be causing this and if this is something on my end that is blaringly obvious, I hope you see this as the amount of time alone on this challenge is sad!

        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.

You put both rules inside the .main-header selector, but the font-size rule should go inside .main-heading. It's a subtle difference.

.main-header {
  background-color: orange;  

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

Also, you have a header tag inside a header tag. You just want one. But I don't think this was causing the issue.

    <header class="main-header">
      <span>Journey through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
      <h1>Lake Tahoe, California</h1>
   <!-- more code... -->
