        <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="#hotels">Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel</a></li>
          <li><a href="#resorts">South Lake Tahoe Resorts</a></li>
          <li><a href="#lodging">Tahoe Ski Resort Lodging</a></li>

      <div class="content-traveling">
        <img src="mtn-landscape.jpg" alt="Mountain Landscape">
        <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>
        </div><!-- End .secondary-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>

Did you get this error?

"Bummer: Make sure you're giving the 'secondary-content' div on line 9 the correct class for clearing floats."

It's missing the "t-border" on line 9. It should look like this:

<div class="secondary-content t-border group">

The clearfix in the css should look like this:

.group::after {
  content: "";
  display: table;
  clear: both;

You don't need this part, but it will pass with it:

.group::after {

You just need to clear the code up of simple mistakes. Watch for duplicate colons :: in your code in this case.

Also, you have duplicated the float clear fix code top and bottom.

My code below should work / be used for reference.

/* Clearfix ---------------------------------- */ .content-lodging { float: right; }

.content-traveling { float: left; }

.group: after { content: ""; display: table; clear: both; }
