Why is this code not working?

Not much to put here...it seems pretty straightforward as far as i can tell I did it just like the video.

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
.main-header {

  background-image: linear-gradient(to top, steelblue, darkslateblue 90%, green)
<!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 -->

Hi Jonathon,

The only reason this is not working for the code challenge is because you have another color stop of green at the end of the parameters the code challenge did not ask you to do. These code challenges are very picky so you have to stick to what it is exactly asking for.

Take Care!

Ugh it's so humbling to keep getting schooled on these simple mistakes. I do appreciate your kindness and your help.

You take care as well!
