          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.

          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.

It should say don't forget your semicolons

Thank you! I didn't realize you needed the semi-colon with only one thing.

Important side-note: while the answer-evaluator dinged you for missing semicolons, you should know semicolons are NOT required on a rule's last declaration in a real CSS file. What you have is perfectly valid CSS.

.anything {
  margin: 1em 0;
  font-family: sans-serif;
  font-size: 16px
}
.whatever {
  text-transform: uppercase
}

Both of those semicolon omissions are totally fine, and if you ever minify your CSS, the minifier WILL remove them even if you wrote them there to begin with.

That said, it is A NICE HABIT to be in to always close every declaration with a semicolon, so that you can be free to add declarations after it and generally just be consistent in your coding.
