  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Elim 
  trees,  (Ex.  15:27;  Num.  33:9),  the  name  of  the  second  station 
  where  the  Israelites  encamped  after  crossing  the  Red  Sea.  It  had 
  "twelve  wells  of  water  and  threescore  and  ten  palm  trees."  It 
  has  been  identified  with  the  Wady  Ghurundel  the  most  noted  of 
  the  four  wadies  which  descend  from  the  range  of  et-Tih  towards 
  the  sea.  Here  they  probably  remained  some  considerable  time.  The 
  form  of  expression  in  Ex  16:1  seems  to  imply  that  the  people 
  proceeded  in  detachments  or  companies  from  Elim,  and  only  for 
  the  first  time  were  assembled  as  a  complete  host  when  they 
  reached  the  wilderness  of  Sin  (q.v.).
