You won't see the Washington Monument in its naked form until at least 2014.

Earlier this week we had a stunning video of workers at the top of the Washington Monument putting in the last of the scaffolding that has come to surround the structure as part of the repairs to damage cause by the August 2011 earthquake. Today, the U.S. Department of Interior provides a time lapse video of the scaffolding as it was installed from March 20 to May 13. Not only do you see the scaffolding as it climbs the 555-foot-tall monument, but you also see the changing weather as Washington transitioned from winter to spring.
