We have to define what nature is before the question at hand can be answered. The way you define nature will probably determine how you answer the question.
The subatomic aspect of nature is what I'm most concerned with. What I mean by that is a cool breeze hitting my face at the right time in the right place can mean a lot more to me than a kiss from a loved one.
I believe the most important expression of nature is spirit. Thus, I'm of the view that I could connect with nature while sitting alone in an empty room. I've found that it's easier to connect with nature while swimming in a lake or walking in a forest, but things like that aren't necessary for me to connect with nature.
I was criticized by someone recently because they believe I seem to be far from nature. If nature only means connecting with an ecosystem, that is true. But, if you look at nature in a broader context, I believe I do connect with nature. I do it constantly.
