I want to add the Lake Tahoe website to my website.

I want to add the Lake Tahoe website that I created in the CSS videos to my portfolio website I created in the HTML videos. I want to make it a link from one of the image. How would it be best to go about this?

Wrap the image in an < a > tag with an href going to your Lake Tahoe site. Adding target="_blank" will make the link open in a new tab.

<a href="http://laketahoesite.com" target="_blank"><img src="images/laketahoe.jpg" alt="LakeTahoeSite.com was built to showcase blah blah blah blah" title="Visit LakeTahoeSite.com - A site built by me" /></a>

I do not have it on its own website yet. Do I have to create a new website for it, or can I add it as an extension of my other website. Like another page. How would I add it as a new page?

<a href="laketahoe.html" target="html/Laketahoe.html"><img src="images/laketahoe.jpg" alt="Lake Tahoe information to show CSS capabilities." title="Visit laketahoe - A site built by me" /></a>

This is the code I tried adding to my home page. It's not working though.

<header id="top" class="main-header"> <a href="index.html"> <span class="title">Journey Through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>

and that is the code I tried using in my laketahoe.html to link them. Obviously I'm not doing something right, but I can't find anything online to help me figure it out.

I think you forget to add this one?

    <a href="index.html">
  <span class="title">Journey Through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>

I'm using Cyberduck and Brackets if that helps.
