If your only doing a couple of miles at 60 mph, you could get away with 14/48, but if you plan on running 60 mph for 45 min - a hour or more, personally...I would want the 15/50
You said you ride trails and desert...no mention of tight single track, so it should be fine, but the 15/50 1st gear would certainly be a noticable difference on tight single track.

I ran 15/45 for a while, that's a bit tall for a usable 1st gear offroad. However it was plenty fast on the top end. I still have the 15 front, and went to a 50 rear and I am happy with it.
Ive tested these setups too death.
For dual sporting, and commuting I would run a 15-45 (110mph +)
for open desert riding (14-45) (same ration a 15-48)
For desert racing and fast enduro's 15-50 (88mph top end)
for technical single track with lots of rocks and climbs, 13-50
My favorite is the 13-50 closely followed by the 15-50 (runs 60-65mph fine)
