                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.

        <h3>From Tents to Resorts</h3>
        <p>
          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:
        </p>
        <ul>
          <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>
        </ul>       
      </div>
      <div>
        <h3>Pack Accordingly</h3>
        <p>
          One of most important things when it comes to traveling through the great outdoors is packing accordingly. Here are a few tips:
        </p>
        <ol>
          <li>Bring layers of clothing</li>
          <li>Pack sunscreen</li>
          <li>Carry extra water just in case</li>
          <li>Pack light</li>
        </ol>
      </div>
        </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>

padding: TOP RIGHT BOTTOM LEFT; margin: TOP RIGHT BOTTOM LEFT;

.primary-content {
 padding: 25px 25px 95px 25px; 
}

PS never use padding-top this is OLD CSS style we are now in CSS3 :)

Hi Frank,

Check your syntax, you have an extra } between the line of .wildlife and .secondary-content. That's probably why the challenge is not passing. Your padding rule is just fine.

Also, you are free to use just padding-top and all the individual properties.

The padding shorthand is not an new technique nor related to CSS3. It's actually from the CSS2 specs: https://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/box.html#propdef-padding so you can use either one that fits what you are doing at the moment.

If you want to use the shorthand for your example however, it would be:

padding: 25px 0 95px;
