Author and Entrepreneur Charles G. Irion Embarking on a New Adventure

Author to climb Mt. Machu Picchu during trip to Peru.

Scottsdale, AZ, March 11, 2012 --( In June, Charles G. Irion author of the Summit Murder Mystery Series is heading to Peru to begin a new adventure. In keeping with the philanthropy efforts that Irion holds dear, while in Peru, Irion will be performing one day of community service helping disabled children in Nuestra Senora del Carmen—in Cusco, Peru. Irion can’t wait, “I am really looking forward to this trip, it is sure to be memorable and one I will treasure for a lifetime.”

Irion is joining K2 Adventures Foundation on this trip and it will start out with a visit to the spectacular cities of Lima, Cusco, and Aguas Calientes. Including guided tours of the historic city of Cusco, and a six day hike to reach the ancient city Machu Picchu, Irion will clearly be in his element. No stranger to mountain climbing after his climbs up Mt. Everest in 1987, and Mt. Kilimanjaro in 2011, Irion is looking forward to adding this mountain to his ever growing list of accomplishments.

Sure to be a world class adventure, there is no doubt fans of the Summit Murder Mystery Series hope that Irion will walk away from this trip with an idea for a new book. “You never know!” laughs Irion.
