I camp in the desert frequently, so I've got some experience with really high temperatures(not in the 50+ range, but in the upper 40s). It's not so bad if you take it really easy, but without a good supply of drinking water and shade you get problems fast.

Upper 40s would still be unbearable for me. I tolerate cold much better than heat - my body much prefers the cold. I think my ancestors were Scandinavian.
