In the gorge at the far end of Wadi Zin, there was a trickle of water, turned green by the minerals and algae.

ISRA-ii-SSR2-120 Solomon's Pillars
Timnah Valley

ISRA-ii-SSR1-91 Mountains near Eilat - 1
The Gulf of Aqaba is not the "finger" of the Red Sea where the Israelites miraculously crossed. However, looking at the rugged terrain here certainly gives you a better idea of the predicament they were in when they had mountains on both sides, the Red Sea in front of them, and the Egyptian army closing in behind them. If the mountains in the biblical text were anything like these, then climbing over the mountains to escape the army was obviously not an option!

ISRA-ii-SSR1-92 Mountains near Eilat - 2
In the haze behind the mountain ridge at the right is the Gulf of Aqaba/Eilat.

ISRA-ii-SSR1-93 Gulf of Aqaba
Aqaba is a city on the Jordanian side; it is also called Gulf of Eilat, after the city on the Israel side.

Numbers 20:2-13 - At Kadesh-barnea, Moses sinned by striking the rock for water instead of speaking to the rock as God commanded.
Joshua 14:6-7 - The 12 spies had been sent out from Kadesh-barnea.
