what is wrong with my code?

Hi, and thank you, why is this code not working? It's very frustrating when I have the correct code and it won't pass; but I am sure I am missing something here. Thanks in advance. ^.,.^

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <header id ="top" class="main-header">
h1 class="main-heading"
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
      <h1 class="main-heading">

      <span>Journey through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
      <h1>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.

      <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.

I see a missing curly-brace for the ".main-heading" selector. You have...

.main-heading { font-size: 72px

when it should be....

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

Try that and submit.

Also, as a good practice, I'd recommend using hex color codes instead of specific names of colors. I'm not sure that "lightsteelblue" will pass either. You may want to check that too.

ahhh, thank you, wish the code was easier to read, it's very light grey and can hardly see it.
