If the length of the rigid between the supports is less than ten feet it is legal.

The span table is from NEC 352.30 (B) the next section list expansion fittings 352.44 NEC which may be required for this installation.
Being in California it might be recommended to use a flexible raceway between buildings.

If it was easy, anyone could do it.
