Hiking and camping is a good way to get out into God's creation and experience it without all the modern comforts. Many of us, myself included, are comforted by modern life and we need to experience life without convenience. When we read the bible, we see lives without so much ease. Jesus, when he was ministering on the earth in Israel, often prayed through the night in the outdoors.
In these days, he went out to the mountain to pray, and he continued all night in prayer to God. - Luke 6:12
Paul experienced a lot of trials and often lacked comfort for the flesh.
Are they servants of Christ? (I speak as one beside himself) I am more so; in labors more abundantly, in prisons more abundantly, in stripes above measure, in deaths often. Five times from the Jews I received forty stripes minus one. Three times I was beaten with rods. Once I was stoned. Three times I suffered shipwreck. I have been a night and a day in the deep. I have been in travels often, perils of rivers, perils of robbers, perils from my countrymen, perils from the Gentiles, perils in the city, perils in the wilderness, perils in the sea, perils among false brothers; in labor and travail, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, and in cold and nakedness. - 2Corinthians 11:23-27
