Marshall Bloom, director of the Rocky Mountain Laboratories, stands in front of construction on a new lab that will research potentially lethal germs in an effort to stem the danger from bio-terrorism in Hamilton, Montana August 24, 2005. Montana's Bitterroot Valley, surrounded by mountains, has long offered a respite from the modern world, an area of small-town values with rivers beloved by fishermen and a thriving log cabin business. The bucolic setting between two mountain ranges in western Montana will soon host one of the nation's few biowarfare defense labs, a controversial $66.5 million building where scientists will research dangerous pathogens in an effort to stem deadly attacks.
