Lehi and His Family Traveling from Jerusalem to Bountiful

" And it came to pass that [Lehi], and...his family...departed, [from Jerusalem], to the wilderness.  And...came down by the borders near the shore of the Red 'Sea...."  (1 Nephi 2: 4-5)

<< Map from Jerusalem to the Borders near the shore of the Red Sea. (Aqaba)
The most logical geographical and unswerving exact traveling location to this 'near the shore of the Red Sea', would be into the Great Jorden Rift Valley to the Gulf of Aqaba

 ----------------------

.  ....Lehi and his family "traveled" again for "three [more] days" and this time "piched his tent," not by the sea shore, but "in a valley by the side of a river of water".  (1 Nephi 2:6)
"...He, [Lehi], called the name of the river, Laman and it emptied into the Red Sea...."  (1 Nephi 2:8)
Lehi called the name of the valley, "... the valley of Lemuel..."  (1 Nephi 2:14)

 ------
   The location of the valley of Lemuel with the river of Laman flowing through it has various possible options to consider.  For the sake of time I have provided two of the following links published back in the 1972 Ensign  on the subject.
