Open boulder strewn grassland.
Thanks Noah Citizen and Liam.Could it be E. a. alpina: Arctic-alpine summits of north-western US (Mount Rainier and Mount St. Helens) - I was hiking around Mt Rainier at the time...
Narrowing down to subspecies is tough here, but maybe E.a. merrilli?
I would guess it is a juvenile Horned Lark.
