          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 <a href="#mink">mink</a>, <a href="#bears">bears</a>, and <a href="#eagles">bald eagles</a>.

        <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>
        <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 -->

It seems that you having difficulty understanding the different css properties and what they do.

Here is a great and professional resource for learning more about css properties https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/Reference

What I typically do when researching a single property, say border, is I will google "css border" and then find the https://developer.mozilla.org website listing and click there.

I would recommend researching these three css properties: color - https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/color border - https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/border border-top - https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/border-top
