There are several genera of weedy yellow daisies like this in the CNM area, and the key to daisy genera in Plantnet is difficult. To make matters worse a lot of it is based on details of seeds. You need at least good photos of basal and stem leaves, if present, a side on photo of a flower, and a photo of the whole plant from the side.
I can recognise several of them on sight, but this one stumps me.

Given the location (a seemingly long walk from anywhere), its altitude and time of year I suspect this is a species of Podolepis.

I think you are right. I have never seen Podolepis looking as sad as these. Although now I look at photo 1 again, there is one flower at the top that actually looks like what I would expect of Podolepis. Given the width of the leaves, far wider than the maximum for jaceoides or hieracioides (25 mm) and the altitude, it has to be Podilepis robusta.
